“Marine Park”

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We were very impressed with the childrens play area. The surface is very bouncy if they fell and the equipment is very safe. The sandpit is highly technical and stretches childs imagination. There is a lovely train going around the lake . We saw it being tested but had to leave before they were running it.

We visited south marine park on our way home from our holiday stay.

Our b&b was only two mins away, so we thought we'd have a look.

The park was beautiful, very clean and tidy and the children's play areas were fantastic. It was great to see no graffiti and everything in working order! My two year old really enjoyed it.

The pedal boats, cafe and mini steam train are a bonus, although sadly we didn't get chance to experience them as they didn't start till 11am, which is a shame as South Shields being a seaside place and surrounded by hotels and bed and breakfasts, most people will be up and about by 9.30, so it would have been nice if they started earlier. Overall will visit again on our next trip.

It's a beautiful place in general, unfortunately we went when a large group of thuggish males were drinking cans of Stella and swearing loudly. It was 11am in South Shields so probably to be expected! The council seem to spend millions on making everything look nice but nothing to make it secure. Saltwell park has security and foot patrols. Think i will stick with that.

happened on this park, a fun family place with live music at weekends, a little train and nice cafe. Great for kids to run off some energy. I really liked the sign asking people not to feed the ducks white bread,but to bring chopped up greens

Do not dislike anything in South Shields.The seafront is always very clean and well kept,flowerbeds are very colourful.The new walkways near Little Haven are a vast improvement.The people are very friendly.
