A walk in the park

Walking is beneficial for both our physical and mental wellbeing and is a great way to take in our natural surroundings.

We have fantastic historical parks and beautiful picturesque walks in and around Sunderland which are all free to enjoy. Walking is beneficial for both our physical and mental wellbeing and is a great way to take in our natural surroundings.

Sunderland City Council have chosen six parks and one walking route from across the city and have set up a challenge in each area.

Simply take your booklet to the  parks, from there the challenge is to find each picture that is displayed for each landmark in that park. Once found you may wish to take your own photograph or simply tick each landmark off.

The parks and routes included are:

  • Barnes Park
  • Herrington Country Park
  • Hetton Lyons Country Park
  • Mowbray Park
  • Roker Park
  • Silksworth Sports Complex
  • Washington Wetland Centre
