It was in 1834 that the Sheffield Botanical and Horticultural Society commissioned these gardens to be built. The Gardens were opened in 1836. Admission was limited to subscribers; the public was only allowed in on gala days. Free admission was only introduced in 1897 when the gardens were taken over by the Sheffield Town Trust.
