Wellbeing tied to new arts and creative practice walking/cycling routes

 Riverside Park, connecting the Gateshead Quays to Dunston Staiths, is a green space with diverse natural assets and a number of public art sculptures.

Newcastle City Futures has brokered a consortium of partners from different sectors interested in working with local communities to explore options for its future sustainable development.

This group is examining potential new uses for the park that can be the source of economic and health benefits in the area, whilst also helping to preserve its natural, artistic and industrial heritage.
