Situated on the banks of the River Tyne, Walker Riverside Park boasts gorgeous scenery and an interesting array of wildlife. According to the council, “You can regularly see wading birds along the river and in recent years there have been an increasing number of sightings of grey and common seals.”

The park covers about 75 acres and is now mostly wildflower meadows, woodlands and grassland, a far cry from its industrial past and now a wonderful place to spend time with your dog.
