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

Great for picnics when the sun is shining! The queues can be long at the ice cream shop on really nice days. Grab some food from shops in town and enjoy the park. This park is popular at lunch time for hospital and university staff!

This wonderful city park recently restored to all its former glory is well worth a visit if you are in Newcastle city centre. It provides another green lung for the city and a terrific place to explore.You can walk round the lake or meander round its paths under beautiful trees or just relax on the lawns
