Crookes Valley Park is a moderately sized and fairly popular picnic spot in Sheffield, boasting a lovely lake which used to be a reservoir (therefore it's fairly deep, and hosts a variety of fish), wide decent-sized fields, a small play-area for children and plenty of benches for relaxing on.

Throughout the summer this and many other parks in Sheffield will be filled to the brim with their huge student population, but there's plenty of room still for a family day out. Would highly recommend a nice stroll through it if only to sit down for a few minutes during your lunch break or to feed the ducks and have a picnic with your children.

There's also a sizeable pub named Dam House which is situated towards the top of the park - perfect for an afternoon drink. They're also known for their pizzas, so if you're looking for a slightly heavier lunch or even a delicious dinner with a nice view this is definitely the place for you.
