There is a free car park, with blue badge parking, and accessible toilets (you’ll need a RADAR Key).

The walk along the river bank is very beautiful and there is plenty of wildlife to watch out for along the River Tyne. The park features an avenue of beautiful mature trees and autumn is a good time to visit as the trees are changing colour and the salmon can be seen leaping up the river. The park is also dog friendly.

From the riverside you get a good view of the 18th century bridge – just one of the many bridges that cross the River Tyne

Access TOG Verdict:

The terrain is solid and level which makes it great for all types of wheelchairs, pushchairs and buggies.
