South and North Marine Parks
Park in South Shields
The South and North Marine Parks are located on the seafront in South Shields. The parks have a miniature railway, a boating lake hiring out pedal boats, two soft play areas, distant sea views and a cafe. For over 100 years it has been a place for walking, dancing, relaxing, playing and socialising for local residents. The quieter North Marine Park stretches up to Arbeia and the mouth of the Tyne.
The park was designed by Matthew Hall, the Borough’s surveyor and Engineer. John Peebles was appointed head gardener in 1886 and immediately set about creating the park that we know today.
