Amongst the park’s many attractions are:
- an aviary. Can you persuade the parrots to talk to you or imitate a telephone?
- a children's play area full of exciting equipment - run around, climb and jump!
- a sandpit with water pump - who needs the seaside? Nip to the museum shop to buy a bucket and spade for a real seaside experience!
- a rose garden and sensory garden. Somewhere to relax and stimulate your senses - sit among the lavendar and thyme. Watch the bees going from flower to flower
- a miniature railway. All aboard on Sundays from May to September 1pm-4pm, and during the summer holidays also on Wednesday 11am-3pm. Tickets are free but please give a donation. Volunteers of the North Staffordshire Model Engineering Society run this. Visit their website for more details
- open space and amazing trees - enjoy the outdoors! There is lots of space for ball games, running, rolling and having picnics under the trees. In autumn, it is a great place to collect conkers.
There is also an additional cafe and soft play area in the park.
Sculptures and memorials
There are a growing number of sculptures and memorials in the park.
These include 'The Lady in the Park', seated on a bench under the trees. She is a memorial to all the women in Newcastle-under-Lyme who lost husbands, sons and friends in the First World War and subsequent conflicts.
