This is absolutely fantastic. It’s such a shame we didn’t see a jay, red squirrel or a fox but nevermind I will be here again. The scenery is great and it has a play park and a skate park.

Great play ground, bmx track, walking, mountain biking and scenic too! I’ve not seen much wildlife yet, but what a fantastic use of an old slag heap

Nice area
Dec 2018 • Solo
Pleasant area, friendly visitors.
Nice area with a few features like a football field, cycle tracks, bmx area, kiddies play area. When raining the kids area often seems flooded. Most dog walkers pick up the poop but there a few people who don't- (why can't the council enforce this more?)

I visit the park regularly and have been lucky enough to twice see “The Beast of Gallagher Park”. Some people think it’s a distant cousin of the Sasquatch while others believe it to be the illicit offspring of a couple of yokels who got it together one night after drinking copious amounts of Red Stripe in the Domino. Either way it’s an impressive creature.

Lovely man made walks
Aug 2018 • Solo
I live very close to Gallagher park and regularly walk over the hill and use the colour coded man made walks. Sadly some of the local skanks use it as a place to booze up and leave a disgusting mess and have also set fire to wooden chairs and tables and also in the wooded areas. It will not deter me from using it as often I see deer and red squirrels

A space to breathe.

One contributor writes that Gallagher Park is just an empty space with no features. Such calm with great views is clearly too much of a shock. Where once was a pit heap is now woods with deer, red squirrels, foxes and jays. There are cycle tracks, signed walks and room to walk your dog and to let your children run free. It is true that not all dog walkers or indeed people of all descriptions respect the environment, but the Friends of Gallagher Park do organise litter picks, so if ever you feel like volunteering, just make yourself known. Look out for live music this summer.

We regularly walk through the park to get up to bedlington town centre. It is a beautiful park with a large grass area which is surrounded by many mature trees. There is several different parts to the park offering, dog walking, football, children's play area, mountain biking etc.

Took my dog for a walk in the park,lots of litter lying around,lots of dog poo not been picked up by lazy dog owners! Such a shame as it's a huge green area. Could be a lot better.

Nothing there, frequented by bores who think any open space is amazing even though it has no features.

Brilliant local walk for dogs
Sep 2015 • Friends
We come here fairly often walking our dogs. It's like one big path with field either side, great for exercise. Isn't the longest of walks but its just the job for local people.
