We recently stumbled across this great website and thought the residents of Jesmond or anyone visiting the area may find it useful and interesting. Sometimes this local attraction can be taken for granted and its important that its beauty and facilities are preserved for us and future generations to continue enjoying.
Theres some great info on there with regards to history trails, nature trails and also advice on how to get there via public transport links.
