A gem of the north east! Beautifully maintained park with lots to do for the whole family. Lovely walks around the lake or coffee in Saltwell towers. Definitely worth a visit.

Saltwell is a lovely park with many amenities......... my only criticism is dogs have to be kept on leads everywhere except the dedicated exercise area which is small. It's a lovely place to visit, there is good parking.
