Bents Park

Bents Park Sea Road,
South Shields,
Tyne and Wear,
NE33 2LD

Situated on the seafront at South Shields this open grassy park is the venue for a wide range of events including the Proms in the Park and the South Tyneside Summer Festival Sunday Concert Series.

Artists have taken to the stage here in front of appreciative crowds.

The park is also the finish point for the annual Cookson Parade and the Tyne Tees Run.

When the park isn't in use for events it is a perfect spot for a picnic, informal games or a gentle stroll.
