Endcliffe Park is a large park in the city of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. The park was opened in 1887 to commemorate the Jubilee of Queen Victoria. When travelling West from the city centre it is the first in a series of parks and green spaces, known collectively as Porter Valley Parks, all of which lie along the course of the Porter Brook. The next park in the sequence is Bingham Park, separated from Endcliffe Park by Rustlings Road. In 1924 Patrick Abercrombie said of the parks, "The Porter Brook Parkway, consisting as it does of a string of contiguous open spaces, is the finest example to be found in this country of a radial park strip, an elongated open space, leading from a built-up part of the city direct into the country, the land occupied being a river valley and so for the greater part unsuitable for building."

Great play areas, scenic views and a variety of lengths of walking to get into. Excellent little cafe with good food and drink. Perfect for a hot chocolate after a cold wintery walk through the park. Parkor section and outside gym plus enclosed playground for smaller children with swings, slides etc. Lots of sports played on the fields here in all weathers. Many people walking, running, cycling, and taking their dogs and children out for a stroll!

Lovely Park too walk the dogs most people are friendly and will say hello. Kids enjoyed the play area. Only thing is the cafe is a little on the expensive side cost just under £6.00 for 2 bottles of pop and a kids bottle of water. But I suppose the parking is free so it's subsidised in a way

A great public park. Open to everyone and free. The lake with ducks is popular with young children who can feed the ducks. A children's playground with swings, slides and other equipment. Climbing frames for older children. The Bouncy castle is normally open in school holidays and weekends, weather permitting, but you have to pay for this. Good place for a walk with nice views. Park run on Saturday mornings.

A far cry from what I remember endcliffe park looking like when I was a child. However, it's not without it's charms. There are plenty of middle aged men walking about with little commonsense, trying to push prams through several inches of mud seems a bit silly when there is a path just to the left. Still it entertained me. So 3 stars for now. Might increase as it probably is much nicer in the summer.

One of my favorite parks. Beautiful landscape, big open ground, old big trees, small ponds, magical environment. The cafe inside provides an ideal cafe to relax after a long run. This is also the park where the weekly parkrun happens.

Endcliffe has always been one of my favourite parks from being a child to an adult and bringing my own children. It's fairly large, with 2 duck ponds and a large player area, lots of grass to either play ball games or have a picnic. There is also a cafe, where they sell lovely food and drinks. Parking is available to the main road, but for disabled visitors there is a couple of spaces just near the playground.

Endcliffe Park is one of the great parks that run throughout the city of Sheffield. A gift of the steel factory owners during Victorian times. A beautiful open space where students, families and groups like to congregate to enjoy balmy summer evenings. The park has a great on site cafe which gets very busy at times, a children's play area and lovely walks through wooded areas and by mill and duck ponds.

Great place for everyone. Playground can get busy at weekends but great for kids of all ages. Cafe great especially with children. Very fast service and cheap. It loses one star due to most dog owners allowing their dogs to run around and up to small children. They also allow them to poo and not pick it up!! It's a shame they cannot read the notices to keep their dogs on leads as this can scare some of the children and can spoil the experience. Toilets very basic and not very clean but at least they're there!

Great space to play out with the kids, but always very busy even in winter. The kids play area is brilliant with lots to do and plenty to keep the little ones entertained - and adults too! Lots of joggers around but it is a city centre park!

The perfect urban park. Great children's playground. Two ponds. Parkour for the adventurous. Exercise gym for keep fit. Woodland walks and a large open area for games.

Great park for adults and kids alike. Open spaces for team games, football etc. Nice for a short run of to run through as part of a longer run. Areas for calisthenics and free running as well as large kids playground. Fabulous cafe and 2 large duck ponds to boot (food available at the cafe). If you are really lucky you may even see one of the 2 herons that frequent the ponds or even a kingfisher that occasionally makes an appearance.

A linea park running from Hunters Bar roundabout along the Porter Brook. There is a formal play area, a parkour area to practice jumps, a large field and a lovely cafe with outdoor seating in summer, limited indoor seating and a couple of toilets. It's a popular dog walking area and there are ponds with ducks that are often over fed. There are bridges and stepping stones over the river and woods to walk through. There are many actives throughout the week so check for a variety of activities.

This park has, in a relatively small space, a variety of areas to explore. A wide open South facing green space for ball games and other outdoor activities. A climbing play area with soft tarmac for the younger ones is adjacent, as is a very nice cafe with seating inside and outside. A toilet block close by is kept in good order and clean. Behind the cafe and winging down the length of the park is Porter Brook with paths either side for tree shades walks. Two old mill ponds attract the usual ducks and gulls and squirrels abound in the wooded banks which form the north side of the park. Finally in one corner of the open space is an enclosed area with swings, slide and other apparatus for the toddlers. This place is popular in the summer for families and all year round for dogwalkers and that's what attracts me. My Sasha loves the place for all the new friends she encounters.
