Ages: all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Carlisle Park has plenty to be enjoyed, is open every day and is free to visit. If you are feeling active, there is a paddling pool and a skate park to play in. If you fancy something slower paced, you can take in a game of bowls or relax with a picnic.

There is a wonderful woodland, full of all sorts of wildlife, including plenty of birds, especially during springtime. Listen out for woodpeckers or search the treetops for a glimpse of a red squirrel.

Climb to the top of Ha' Hill to experience 1000 years of heritage at the 11th century motte and bailey, which was built to defend Morpeth from invaders! You will also see Castle Morpeth to the south, which is over 800 years old.

There are some beautiful plants in the Formal Gardens, including a Monkey Puzzle tree family and other exotic trees. In the William Turner memorial garden, you can also discover an era when plants weren't just for decoration, but when they were sources of food, medicine, clothing and dyes.
