Plans to revitalise Northumberland Park are well underway.
The local authority was awarded £109,000 form the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop final specifications for the revitalisation of the park ahead of a £2.2m funding application. This was achieved in July 2012.
The award is the latest success for North Tyneside Council's Excellent Parks Programme.
Northumberland Park, which lies between Tynemouth and North Shields, opened in 1885 and is comprised of woodland areas, formal gardens, pond, bowling greens and a play site. It has been described as a highly-valued and popular green space for the people of Tynemouth and North Shields.
Improve both physical and intellectual access to the park and its unique history
Work will get underway in the Autumn and will be completed by late 2015.
