Tyne Green Country Park, Hexham
The park covers a 19-hectare site which includes a golf course and greens. The land was presented to commemorate Queen Victoria's Jubilee in 1887 by Lord Allendale for the leisure of the local people. It was set out with public walks between avenues of trees and became very popular with the people of Hexham.
The River Tyne is wide, fast and, in places, deep. Swimming in the river is not advised unless it is as part of an organised group of experienced swimmers. Throw-lines and lifebelts are located at intervals along the riverside.
Please do not try to walk along the weir, which is the barrier across the river.
It is free to park in the Tyne Green car park. You are advised not to leave any valuables in your car.
Visitors are respectfully asked to keep their cars within the outlined car parking areas and not to drive on the green itself.
