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 the 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."
Endcliffe Park comprises parkland as well as woodland. The portion along Rustlings Road is grassy and used as a recreation ground whilst the Northern border, separated from the recreation grounds by the Porter Brook is woodland, and is traversed by many paths.

The Ecclesall Road entrance to the park is next to the former Hunter's Bar toll bar on the former Sheffield and Chapel-en-le-Frith toll road.Old-Maps - the online repository of historic maps - home page Next to the entrance is a Grade II listed pavilion and lodge, built in 1891.
Close to the park's entrance is the Hallamshire Tennis & Squash Club.

  • Lovely walks...nature at its best with a meandering Brook which adds interest both visually and aurally. Two ponds with friendly ducks. The cafe has opened and we can sit and eat outside. Gorgeous. The children's play area is well maintained and at weekends and bank Holidays there is a sweet little funfair for younger children with a blow-up castle. Well supervised. Don't forget to see the war memorial that was featured on BBC. It also now includes the Ukrainian flag so we can remember their current struggles.
  • This is a beautiful, expansive park with so many features. Great for mums to push around their parks with their little ones, walks with friends, a bite to eat at the cafe, nice playground, picnic area, and a place to relax. People from all walks of life come to Endcliffe Park because it’s a welcoming, serene place to be.
