Came across the park by accident as I didn't know anything about it. What a wonderful place.
As parks go its got the lot. Lots of interesting little nooks and crannies. Well kept grass and bits where they have let it go wild to encourage wildlife. Lots of art and sculptures dotted about. A wonderful high up view point is at the back of the park.
I like the fact it is not flat like a lot of parks. There are dips and hillocks with paths winding here and there making exploring fun. Great kids play area and an Alice in Wonderland theme sees giant chess figures (as well as a walrus and spooky door to Wonderland). I am told Lewis Carroll wrote his famous poem Jabberwocky whilst staying in the city.
The place is next to the Winter Gardens and a very smart war memorial, both worth a look while there. It also has a lake
I would say a Sunderland gem. A very pleasant green oasis to spend some time away from the city. Don't feed the birds though.
