Park beautiful, cafe extortionate
Jun 2021
Wonderful place to have a lovely enjoyable walk.
We had the baby in his pushchair but typical we had to search for a toilet with a nappy change. Not a problem until we came out and we’re told you had to make a purchase to use the fascilities. We didn’t really want anything but thought we better get a cuppa. We did this then decided to add 1 scone to the list, so 3 teas + 1 scone. How much? £24 extortion or what. How can a young family afford to go somewhere with those prices, dreadful. We were even more shocked at the toilet fasciitis for a baby change. Once bitten twice shy. So dissatisfied as I’m in my seventies and loved going there.

Fabulous open space within the city
Sep 2019
Great park with plenty of open space to explore, great day out for the family of all ages. Unfortunately can’t rave about the cafe, overpriced and had to complain about our food...huge Mark up on the ice creams too which is unfortunate as they could sell so many at half their cost.

Afternoon stroll
Aug 2019 • Couples
Used it as a short cut from Jesmond to Newcastle, lived in the NE most of my life & never walked through this part of the park, the subway was really clean but think the council should consider allowing some of the talented graffiti artists to decorate the underpass & make it an additional attraction like they do in Australia (included a couple of images to show the variety & talent). Minimal rubbish, families walking dogs, families with children enjoying the park, even a large wedding party 🎉, loved the band stand, great open space.

Play

Lovely morning playing in the summer sun. Scooters were used on the skate park and then some play beside the cafe. A lovely summer holiday morning.

Free toilets?
Aug 2019 • Couples
Lovely park but I could not find a free public toilet. You had to be a customer to use the cafe facility.

Hoppings 2019
Jun 2019 • Family
So this evening at the hoppings I saw.... countless young girls in mini skirts and tiny tops with their boobies hanging out (fake tanned and full make up, lashes and everything), loads of chavvy lads and lasses thinking they’re great doing ravey dances to the chav music, a middle aged woman sitting on the steps of a ride drunk as a lord swigging on a bottle of red wine, a very heavily pregnant girl smoking like a chimney, a man wearing foundation a shade too dark, though probably better than aforementioned girlies (Rylan eat ya heart out), several people with teeth that resemble a set of snooker balls (colour wise) and a pair of dirty knickers on the grass. To top it all off, we went to the bar to try and lighten the mood, only to be told that Newcastle City Council are the only council in the country that wouldn’t grant them a licence to serve alcohol, so all the pretty drinks were just for show, but fear not we had a canny latte, she even took pity on us and gave us a biscuit.
Welcome to the Newcastle Hoppings folks
So purely on the entertainment alone I’m rating it a 5

Great city park with lots to see and do
May 2019 • Couples
An interesting city park with lots to see and do. There's even a brewery in the middle of it. Plenty of joggers and dog walkers it's also used for outdoor music events, so a happening place.

Mixed use park

Large park in the middle of busy Newcastle.

Nice sized pond with spacious playground for the kids.

Parking is free on side roads on Sundays although all other days it is residents parking or limited time free parking.

Cafe near playground.

Dog walking

Wonderful park and lake. It’s frozen today and everything is frosty white. What a beautiful fresh day and the sun is shining. Well worth a visit at any time of the year .

Mela - Indian parade and show on Bank Holiday Monday
Aug 2018 • Couples
Saturday at the Monument the first act arrived. In a barrel, the barrel opened and a five piece band got out. Fantastic music and musicians. Fireworks and streamers shot out of the barrel. Very good display. On to Exhibition Park where there were many stalls and food was plentiful - lots to try. Indian clothes for sale etc. More brilliant acts on stage and the same again this afternoon Bank Holiday Monday. On once a year. First time I have been and only found out about it in the local Metro newspaper. Wow great afternoon out.
