Lovely views of the sea from the top terrace of the park. Pretty, well maintained park with nicely planted flower beds and a lake full of ducks etc. A miniature railway runs around the lake area during main holiday time but wasn't running when I was there. There is a nice cafe overlooking the lake.

I have frequented both of these parks over many years as this is my home town. Brilliant facilities and amusements to entertain all the family.

Both lovely parks to walk around, there doesn't seem to be much in North marine park though. South Marine park has a bandstand, playground, cafe, separate toilet block, boating lake with ducks and a mini ride on steam train. Both are just over the road from the seafront. The marine parks, bents park, caravan parks, several restaurants, amusement park with... More

Both parks are at the seaside coast of South Shields. One having a boat lake cafe/ice cream area. Toilet facilities. Kids play area. Both very well maintained and always a beautiful place to go.

This is a beautiful park. It has a lake with ducks, and paddle boats and a small steam train - £1.50 per ride round the park which takes about 10 minutes. Many people were walking round the lake during our visit. There is also a cafe, A pleasant place to spend an hour or two.

We all enjoyed running round the park playing football and as you get older somewhere to just chill out and have a quiet walk. Well south Marine Park has all that and a boating lake, a steam train to ride round on the band stand (which is still used) and of course the cafe selling ice cream. if that isn't... More
