Nice place for kids and dogs to runabout, lovely mature trees and free apart from parking which was a reasonable £1 or £2 all day. The cafe on the other hand was awful, had plenty of staff but really badly run, we ordered 3 jacket...More

Children and families were clearly enjoying the facilities and possibilities for adventure in the park. For us, it was a base to walk around the Suffolk countryside and into the town without getting caught in town traffic. Parking charge was reasonable.

Family holiday staying in Nowton and this park is in a wonderful setting. There were activities being organised for the children on the day we visited. The walk round the park was absolutely lovely - mind you the weather helped.

We love to take the dogs for a walk here and also great for the kids with friends. There's plenty of country walks, a maze and areas where the kids can build dens. A great place to pass the time on a quiet dog walk...More

Nice place to come for a walk about in the sunshine and have a picnic if you will! lovely scenery, lots of walks measured in KM to walk round and they also have a maze if you are interested in that sort of thing.

Meeting up with my daughters friends when she was visiting from Australia, this was my first visit and was a most pleasant wander around the grounds and will most certainly become a place to visit whenever possible in the future.
