Explore Heaton on foot, bike or e-scooter and breathe in the fresh air when you discover the expansive green of leafy Heaton Park - an ideal starting point to take a stroll all year round and a thriving meeting point for the local community during the long summer evenings when residents spill out to enjoy picnics and BBQs in the sunshine. Enter through the gated entrance on Heaton Road to enjoy a coffee-to-go from the jolliest takeaway coffee cart in the city before venturing through the woods of Armstrong Park to Jesmond Dene and beyond.
