October Half Term Activities

Halloween is a great time to dust of the cobwebs and explore your local parks. We have created a range of outdoor activities to help fill this half term with spooktacular family fun. From seven different pumpkin trails to arts and crafts to competitions, there is lots to do in our parks and allotments this October Half Term!


Keeping our green city thriving

Together with the people of Newcastle, we protect and grow our parks and allotments – helping you connect to nature, communities and make life that little bit sweeter.

Openly encouraging collaboration

Whether you’re an event organiser or a local business, we can help you make things happen in your local park.
