Gosforth Central Park
A green oasis in our community, beloved by all ages. Playground, lawns, tennis & basketballs courts & many clubs & activities. Cared for in this time of austerity by Friends of Gosforth Central Park, who restored the borders and created a wonderful new wildlife garden in a neglected part, helped by local schoolchildren.
On my doorstep, beautiful, alive with flora and fauna, sympathetically maintained, great facilities and a busy (and varied) events programme for all ages - what's not to love?
Its a wonderful park buzzing with life. It has a great sports facilities for all ages from children's play are to all weather bowling green and a new social enterprise café which is providing local employment. In development is a community orchard, beautiful and delicious.
