I love this park. It's always quite even when it's busy and there something for everyone from feeding the ducks at the lake to playing tennis.

I live very next to the park. There is a lake with tiny island. You can find beautiful wild birds here. Feeding them is prohibited unless it is chopped lettuce or spinach. You can seat and enjoy the beauty of the park for a while.

The park is beautiful with lots of grassed areas to sit on. and high trees to provide shade.

On one side, the busy RVI hospital, on the other, St James Park (home to Newcastle United Football Club) and in the middle of the melee, a lovely little park called Leazes Park. I came here the other day, having not visited here since about 1975, even though I live pretty close by. I'd forgotten how lovely it is. Tall... More

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
