Gardens were beautiful

The gardens were well attended and lovely to look at and a great asset to the town for visitors of all ages. Plenty of benches to sit on and admire the plants.

Even in early May, the gardens are well kept and pretty with late Spring flowers. Nice to walk through or sit and admire the gardens and the sea.

Having visited Felixstowe for 7 years, and now live here, these beautiful gardens have been a long time coming, but are definitely worth the wait.

Lovely, lovely place. A brief glimpse of when we knew how to enjoy the seaside. The surrounding architecture is impressive and the sea is fresh and inspiring.

I regularly walk through the gardens, or take a short break, as there are plenty of seats. I have been pleasantly surprised that there has been no apparent vandalism since the newly improved gardens were re-opened last year.

Walked here once or twice on a recent visit. The gardens have been restored over the past 4 or five years, I am led to believe, and they have done an amazing job. Lovely well kept gardens and good for a day or night time stroll.
