Leazes Park

leazes-park.jpg This beautiful park first came into being in 1873 and became the first public or people’s park created on Tyneside for the purposes of exercise and recreation. Over the last decade or so, the park has been carefully, and lovingly, restored to its original, and former, glory. Visitors can now enjoy it in all its splendour with an array of impressive features including reproductions of the two major ornate gateways reconstructed from period photographs. The 16,500km2 lake has also been totally restored with rowing boats being made available for hire. The bandstand has been exactly recreated from historic records and events are held in it over the summer months.
