Located on the very edge of the city centre, the park is a great place to come and chill out. Very picturesque and a good walk. There is a park for the children and a café which is very reasonably priced.

When I was there it was 2°C and wind 8-10m/s. I felt it like -25°C :) but when i came there i had to stop and take a look, enjoy this place. It is so beautiful, it is like heaven - no rush, nature, oasis of peace in Newcastle. During over 1 hour walk i stopped at least 20 times... More

Leazes Park near the centre of the city is a good city park, a fine green place next to St James' Park football ground. Has an urban feel with older trees, good lake and plenty of scope for a good walk. Refurbished a few of years ago, it holds up fine.

I visit this park very regularly and it has a lot going for it , but today there looked to be a plague of rats scurrying around the lake. I've never experienced this before but there appears to be litter and discarded food everywhere. Newcastle City Council needs to get this sorted and quickly before the good work on this... More

Came here after being at the museum. It had good reviews, plus it's a park so expected it to be totally good. There was no joke rats everywhere! Near the pond, in the kids park. Swarming with them! Someone told me not to put my bag down as rats had went into someone's bag earlier and took something (presumably their... More

If you are looking for a quick short getaway, or just sitting around the pond and feed the swans and birds, or playing badminton with your friends, or even just to find a place to read a book, this is one of the best place. It is quiet and peaceful. The only flaw is that sometimes people are trashing in... More

Close to the city centre and just behind St. James' Park, home of NUFC, Leazes Park is a peaceful oasis. The grounds are well kept with plenty of seats with views of the lake. There is a small play area for young children, otherwise not a lot to do except watch the wildfowl, the anglers and other visitors.

Great park in the city, just lots of rubbish floating in the lake. Nicely set out park and a good place to sit whilst at the RVI and watch the ducks
