Endcliffe Park is one of Sheffield’s most popular parks. It’s a great open space, with playground facilities and a family-friendly café, just a short distance from Sheffield city centre. It’s also where you’ll find the famed Mi Amigo memorial. Recently featured on BBC Breakfast, it marks the crash site of a World War II B-17 Flying Fortress.
If you’re looking for something a more than just a wander around the park, it’s also a great starting point for several other walks.
