Not too many changes over the years and has some lovely areas, although i# do think more could be made in terms of activities for children. There was more available when I was a child. I understand that tennis courts etc were vandalised years ago...More

One of many beautiful parks in Ipswich. Walk around the ponds and the knotted garden. If you're lucky you may see a muntjac deer.

We spent the whole afternoon in this park. The Children's play area is fab with plenty to keep them busy. The park itself is huge and we spent ages walking around the grounds. There is plenty to get the kids into nature with trees to...More
