A great park for walking your dog and a fantastic children's play area. Easy to get to with plenty of parking spaces. Lovely and clean. Lots to do.

Great for walks, and they often have great family events here, including open air movie screenings. Perfect picnic location.

Come here often mainly to walk the dog. The car park is vast as is the park itself, you can go on many varied walks, with many signposted. The dog loves it, especially swimming in the smaller pond away from the birds!
My only grip is the recent fair that was here for 2 weeks. The fair only took up a small part of the park but the car park was off limits to everyone because they were charging fair goers £2 to park. Every day I had to park over the road by the monumount and cross the busy a road with my dog over to the park. I saw many people who wanted to walk their dogs argueing this fact and next year I think this issue needs addressing. Other then that its a big beautiful park!!

I feel so lucky to live just a short walk away. There is enough space to share all the facilities (playpark for the kiddies, open fields for picnics, hills with viewpoints, lakes, wildlife, cafe, skate/bike park and lots of bridle paths). My dogs feel like royalty being able to have regular walks in such a beautiful setting and can be amazingly peaceful very early in the morning. Just off the A19 opposite Penshaw Monument so easy to find.
