The Rising Sun Countryside Centre is within the Rising Sun Country Park, a green oasis of 162 hectares, set in the heart of North Tyneside.
A park brochure which includes a map showing walking and cycling trails around the park is available at http://www.visitnorthtyneside.com/dbimgs/risingsunleaflet.pdf
Boasting a nature reserve with ponds, woodlands and extensive grasslands; a farm and Countryside Centre, the site is a haven for wildlife and an ideal place to relax and enjoy the great outdoors.
Admission is free. Parking and disabled parking is provided within the grounds (or in the neighbouring ASDA Benton car park).
You can even hire one of our function rooms or outdoor areas for your own event! We have a children's party pack with indoor and outdoor party options and we can provide excellent quality homecooked style catering.
Facilities and attractions:
The Country Park actively promotes healthy living and provides a resource for outdoor activities, healthy home-cooked food and encourages sustainable practices.
The park is managed in partnership by North Tyneside Council and the Rising Sun Farm Trust.
