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.
