I enjoy getting off the bus at the Lawe top overlooking river Tyne mouth and wandering down to the south marine park and a bight to eat or an ice cream in the cafe in the South Park. The park has wide sea views in the north park and flower beds band stand an ornamental boating lake, steam train and... More

In this park you will see lots of different water birds. Parks in South Shields were originally created because the workers came for the industry but were mostly from agricultural backgrounds. Green spaces were very much appreciated :-)

Great family spot. Good cafe with food available and a great little train to take a trip on. Close to the beach and pedalos for hire on the lake make it a good couple of hours in the sunshine.

STMBC should be very proud of the way they maintain their sea front and parks. Everything is well maintained, litter is regularly collected, paths are clean and bushes and grass neat. The pond with its swans and wildlife I avoid as my dogs persist in trying to join the birds to steal their bread. There are plenty benches to watch... More

We love walking around South Shields and South and North Marine parks are simply beautiful to walk through... The Victorian bandstand in South park has many tea dance style affairs while the kids can play noisily down by lake in the playground or on the steam train which toots it's way around the water. If you're after something a little... More

These must be two of the best community spaces in the North East. There are various play areas for the kids and these are of a high and well maintained standard. There is a boating lake with pedallos catering for couples and families. Swans, ducks and loads of seagulls, watch your sandwiches and ice creams, the gulls love them! There... More

South park was really good and had been done up - it had plenty of facilities and was chocka. North park used to be buzzing when I was a kid but its a bit run down now - which was sad. And they have taken away the putting green which was class
