South and North Marine parks are nice amenities near the South Shields promenade. The South Marine park is particularly attractive and has been very well designed, with the attractive lake as the main focal point.

I cannot remember this park as a youth at all! It is really nice. Lots of birds seagulls included on the lake and a great little steam train circling the park. Minchellas ice cream served in the park.

The park has a little train that you can ride for only 2 pound. It is a cheap summer day out and you can have a picnic on the big fields it is amazing.
