Lambton Lion Park was open between 1972 and 1980 and there were plenty of you who took an interest when we posted a photo of the site on the Wearside Echoes Facebook page.

Wearside Echoes is the Sunderland Echo’s specialist page and is devoted to nostalgia from the Sunderland and County Durham areas.

Plenty of you left memories of your visits to Lambton Park.

Who remembers the gift shop, fairground rides and more?
