After 1883, northeast lodge was built to house Dene employees at a time when only fields existed beyond the gates to the park. Newton Road (named after Sir Henry Newton) had recently opened to allow access to Gosforth colliery from Heaton. In 1928 that part of the road along side of the park was renamed Freeman Road.
Paddy Freeman’s lake originated as a duck pond which was attached to their High Heaton farm, situated to the south of the park. The pond was enlarged to its present size and made user- friendly in 1890. There was an island in the lake but this was later removed.

Brings back memories of when I used to play in Paddy Freeman's as a kid back in the mid to late 60's.
Nice photo's, IluvNUFC!
Loved Paddy Freeman's park, it was my playground when I was a kid. That and Jesmond Dene - in the 70s when people didn't freak out so much about their kids playing out! I lived in one of the streets in High Heaton ending in 'Gardens'. It would be great to see some photos of those too!
Cracking website. I absolutely love it.
Jesmond Dene, Heaton and Armstrong Parks were my playgrounds as a kid back in the 70's. I rarely got up to Paddy's though as a kid as I lived near the railway lines in Heaton.
Can people feed the cows in paddy Freeman park? (because I really really want to feed them honeydew melon)
Can people feed the cows in freeman park?
