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

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!

A restored Victorian park a few steps away from the city centre, An ideal place to take a sandwich and relax away from the hustle and bustle for a little while, Footpaths around the boating lake complete with ducks, children's play area, tennis courts and flower beds all well kept.
