Ouseburn Parks


Officially there are five parks that make up the Ouseburn Parks; Paddy Freeman Park, Jesmond Dene, Jesmond Vale, Heaton Park and Armstrong Park. To access the Lower Ouseburn Valley, it is necessary to walk up out of Heaton Park, by the Ouseburn Culvert, cross the City Stadium Park, a sixth park, and walk down into the Lower Ouseburn Valley with its dazzling array of Bridges.

The Ouseburn’s source is Callerton Pond, near Ponteland, from there it meanders through Gosforth, passing through golf courses, farm fields and modern residential developments, gaining size all the time. By the time it reaches Jesmond Dene the stream has become a minor river. After exiting Jesmond Dene, the Ouseburn goes underground briefly before emerging from a culvert just beneath the Ouseburn Viaduct. It is from this point that the Ouseburn Valley properly commences, a valley of just under one kilometre in length.
