Great areas too relaxing. Forces day was a great day. Bent park is a great venue. The weather was better this year but has never stopped us enjoying the parks in this area.

South Marine Park is a park for everyone complete with boating lake and miniature railway, it has been restored in recent years. As with other places in South Shields it is a popular attraction and a short trip from the city.
