Saltwell Park closed - 5 December 2013
Due to high winds we’ve taken the decision to close Saltwell Park for safety reasons. We’ll let you know when the park reopens.
Nestling in the heart of Gateshead’s urban centre is Saltwell Park, one of the borough’s hidden gems. With over two million visitors each year, this tourist attraction is a must for family entertainment!
It’s historical and peaceful grounds have earned many awards such as Green Flag and Britain’s best park. Some of its facilities include ornamental and woodland gardens, a boating lake, bowling greens, play areas, a maze, educational centre and of course the stunning Saltwell Towers
