Sport is the name of the game at The Parks, catering for basketball, football (indoor and outdoor), badminton, bowls, cricket, table tennis, trampolining, gymnastics, martial arts and more! 

The sports hall hosts a variety of activities as part of our dedicated children’s activity programme too; and is also the venue for our popular weekend roller discos.  

Our Contours gym offers state-of-the art equipment and a comprehensive programme of classes are delivered from expert instructors in our modern studios.

We also offer a play den for children, which is located conveniently next to our cafe offering a range of delicious drinks, snacks and light meals.  

The flexibility of the indoor and outdoor facilities makes The Parks a great venue for parties – from children’s play den, pirate and princess or go-karting parties, to weddings for up to 1,000 guests!

Based on the outskirts of North Shields town centre, we’re also a convenient location for meetings, with a variety of good-value room hire options available, including multi-media facilities.
