Gateshead's historic Chase Park in Whickham was refurbished in 2017 with thanks to funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund.
The park's new features include

- This education pack covers Key Stage 1 and 2 and has been developed by educators in the primary sector. Using the park, its surrounding environment and the creatures that call it home as a source of knowledge and learning, this pack aims to guide teachers and educational professionals to inspire and engage children in a creative and fun way.
