Our Gateshead

Friends of Saltwell Park

About us: 

We look to promote and protect the well being and enjoyment of the Park for the benefit of the local community.

We have talks on the second Saturday of every month in the Training Centre starting at 10.30.  See our programme of events. There is a charge of £1.00 .

We are also starting free health walks in the Park.  These are every Tuesday morning at 11.00.  Meet outside the north door of the Towers beside the walks board. 

Saltwell Park has recently been awarded the prestigious Green Flag. The Green Flag Award is the national standard for parks and green spaces in England and Wales and recognises and rewards the best green spaces in the country. Representing quality, the Award is a sign to visitors that a park has met strict criteria, which among other things require it to be a clean, safe and welcoming place to spend time.

This is the fourth time the Park has won this award.


Much of the success is due to the hard work and dedication of the park staff and The Friends of Saltwell Park.

The future of the Park for the years to come is in the hands of the Friends Group. Please join us to find out more about the Park and help to promote and protect the well-being and enjoyment of the Park for the benefit of the local community.

  • An opportunity to put forward views and aspirations about the park
