021 - Watergate Forest Park, Gateshead , Tyne & Wear, UK - 2014.
When we were young kids, one of our highlights of our year, not only our year, but our summer, was a nice short walk from our home in Whickham was a visit to Washingwell Woods.
This was a fantastic adventure for us young children from The Whickham Council Estate, it was having a picnic up and around Washingwell Woods, this was followed by a full day of playing and enjoying ourselves.
Now we have Watergate Country Park, this is a beautiful park, called Watergate Forest Park, built on reclaimed land on the site of the former Watergate Colliery. With its wetlands, woodlands, wildflower meadows and recreational routes, this is a fantastic day out.
