Endcliffe Park is a large park and popular family visitor destination in Sheffield.
Comprising parkland and woodland, 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.
You can follow the network of parks and green spaces along the Porter Valley, all the way out to Peak District and the route connects with the well-known Sheffield Round Walk.
The park has duck ponds, riverside walks and plenty of space for ball games. There's also a large children's playgound, parkour facility and Endcliffe Park Cafe, serving locally sourced food.
Beyond Endcliffe Park, if you follow the network of footpaths and cycleways, you'll encounter the fascinating Shepherd Wheel Workshop, managed by Sheffield Museums Trust and the scenic weir at Forge Dam, also home to another excellent park café.
The park features two monuments dedicated to Queen Victoria. Near the entrance is a statue of Queen Victoria and mid-way up the path towards Whiteley Woods is an obelisk also in honour of Queen Victoria.
Both originally stood at the top of Fargate in Sheffield city centre. A tree planted by the Lord Mayor of Sheffield to commemorate Queen Victoria's Jubilee stands near her statue.
There is also a memorial stone and garden marking the crash site of the USAAF B-17 Flying Fortress Mi Amigo which crashed on 22 February 1944 as the aircraft was returning, heavily damaged by defending Me-109 fighters, from a bombing mission over Aalborg, Denmark. All 10 crew were lost.
