St Lawrence Park


St Lawrence Park is a small neighbourhood park close to the Byker Wall, on the site of a former clay pit and brickworks.


The popular park has a play area, open grassland for informal recreation and ball games and a network of footpaths.

There is an active Friends of St Lawrence Park who organise events and activities in the park as well as coordinating volunteers to help with litter picking and maintenance.
