Fantastic park on the outskirts of Sunderland, it really is a short walk and you have access to amazing walks, cycle routes and a skate park and childs play area.

This was my first visit to Herrington Park. Went with the girls from Spire (Washington)
Had a bracing walk round as it was fresh and windy. Thoroughly enjoyed the walk and will definitely do it again. :))

This is a regular stop for us - the play park is good fun for little ones, although the older children 7 years plus cope better on the equipment - less for little ones...but the open space and tracks/ paths lead to several areas - including boating lake, skate park, bicycle area and more.
Lovely backdrop of hills to one side and penshaw monument to other.
Cafe is very busy and you'll be lucky to get a seat in summer. Summer queue and wait for drinks and food is terrible - but the quality of food is great.
Permanent ice cream van which is cheap too.
You cab drive through park to areas you need to be - which is ideal because it's vast
Great for picnics or learning to ride a bike.
You can always find an area where you'll see nobody - so you can sit and enjoy the quiet!
