Elswick Park

The Park was started in 1881, being developed from land formally known as Elswick Hall. The land had been previously owned by such people as Charles 1 (1539 – 1628) and the Monks of Tynemouth Priory who had a vested interest in the site.

Elswick Park was given to the Newcastle Corporation to prevent the area being developed as housing. In 1975 the land surrounding the park began to be re-developed, and in 1981 work on the Swimming Pool was completed on the site of the old hall.

Hodgkin Park


Hodgkin Park was donated to the City Council by Thomas Hodgkin, a prominent local Banker in 1899, "For the benefit and recreation of local people". Originally the grounds to his house, the park is some 11 acres in size and originally had bowling greens, bandstands and ponds to complement its substantial tree cover. The park is in two parts, dissected by Armstrong Road.

Hodgkin Park is currently undergoing a massive re-vamp. What follows is a few photos of the process and I will go back for some more photos once it has finished.
