Visit Jesmond Dene, a little green in the City

Newcastle, Tyne and Wear

Do you love to picnic? Visit NewcastleGateshead to experience the beautiful wildlife corridor that leads to the centre of Newcastle.

Jesmond Dene is a narrow wooded valley that follows the river Ouseburn between South Gosforth and Jesmond Vale, just outside of the bustling city centre.

With a spectacular mix of native and exotic trees, Jesmond Dene has strong historical links with 19th Centruy industrial development - notably Lord Armstrong.

This beautiful and enchanting park is full of native wildlife from woodland birds to red squirrels, as well as kingfishers in the Dene.

Whether you’re looking for peace and tranquillity or hot spots of activity, this three kilometre Dene has plenty to offer families including a resident pet’s corner, a play park and plenty of educational activity.
