Exhibition Park is a fantastic open space, which is a very short walk from the city centre. There is a skatepark, tennis courts, basketball court, several play areas with a wide variety of play equipment to keep children entertained. A lake with wooden viewing areas, croquet lawns and a croquet club, rowing boat hire and crazy golf available during Spring/Summer months. The pathways are great for bikes and scooters and there is a cycling club connected to the park. Toilet and Cafe facilities, although I think the cafe is seasonal only. Lots of lovely wide open spaces for running around, ball games as well as sitting having picnics in warmer weather.
Parkrun takes place from here 9am every Saturday morning, stating point Exhibition Park/Town Moor, near Claremont Road. Parkrun is a free 5k timed run, just register, print off your barcode and turn up. www.parkrun.org.uk/newcastle
