A pleasant walk to take in Newcastle. It can get cold though. Get some comfy shoes on and a water bottle.

A great park to wander through taking in the spectacular views of a wonderful working harbour. Sit for a while and wait for a ship to come in or go out...it will be worth the wait to see this majestic event.

Approached this park and the signs for the toilets were wrong pointed right through the park not nearly on the road.

The Foreshore in Newcastle is one of the best in the country, a lovely wide path that stretches the length of the harbour is great for a morning jog or leisurely stroll after lunch or dinner to wear off some of Newcastle's amazing food.
