Had another wonderful walk in the park this morning. After a heavy frost and with some great winter sunshine the park offered up a peaceful, tranquil and relaxing place to escape the stresses of everyday life. Once again met some nice people. Great open space on my doorstep.

Large park with a medium sized pond and a big play area for the younger children to play. Great for dog walking in.

The gardens are lovely and a pleasure to spend a couple of hours walking round. Also the Mansion is a wonderful place to visit especially the art gallery.

Wide variety of lanscapes in this lovely park right in the heart of Ipswich. Ipswich does not seem very proud of it as all they seem to bang on about is the extremely over-rated waterfront area.

A nice place to have a relaxing walk right in the city centre. Plenty squirrels to see and hear and the park itself is big enough to have a good walk round. X

This is a very large park within walking distance of the centre of Ipswich town. Varied areas ponds, hills, many trees, woods, flowers etc. At the town main entrance there is the fine Elizabethen Mansion building which has free entrance. Tea shop, ice cream hut, childrens playground area & when it snows there is an excellent toboggan hill.

Lovely park to visit with lots of different parts- tennis courts, nature area, ponds, large grassy areas, plenty of toilets and places for dogs to get a drink. Lots of wildlife such as squirrels, birds, ducks, geese and an owl.
