I've been going to this park since I was a child. It was a family treat and a great place to relax in the sun. Nice walks and a few attractions available e.g. Boating, Ice Cream etc. Gateshead council... more »

A great place to spend May happy hours. With the park split into different sections you can have lots of new adventures in the one venue.
Great outdoor space. Has a hedge maze, boating lake and play areas. Enclosed and traffic free. Great environment for taking children.
Lovely park to go to, it is big enough so that you have enough space for a little picnic on the grass and not be bothered by other visitors. Plenty of fields about for the family with a dog. A park/play area for the kids. A small lake to feed the ducks, plus some paddle boats. The castle/towers is a cafe with some history on the towers up stairs. A seating area where the squirrels sometimes hang out. Another area where the kids can look at chickens, rabbits, budgies etc.
A good place to waste away the hours. A large park with plenty of places to sit for the elderly, a large recreation field for ball games and dog walking, two outdoor play areas to cater for all ages of children, a boating lake and a small area with animals -including a swearing parrot! Ice cream vans and a mobile catering van for food and coffee. My only gripe would be that the play areas could do with a bit of a refurb.
Used to come here 50 years ago as a child visiting grandparents. Brought my grandchildren here today for a quick visit. Will definitely come back..... brought back lots of happy memories.
