I met with a group of friends to explore the this 70 acre Park. Admittedly it was a lovely sunny autumn day, but the park is beautiful. It was clean, well maintained, with rolling open areas of mown grass & trees in the fall, interspersed with features of planted beds, rockery & 2 subtantial ponds with ducks. Also on site... More

Christchurch park is a lovely space with sizeable ponds and the central Christchurch mansion which is well worth a visit.

I really like to spend a sunny day there. Quite and very relaxing. Only downside is when there is a event you can't enjoy because its will be too noisy

This park is absolutely stunning in Autumn - take time out from the hustle and bustle of the town and stroll through the parkland - you might even find a tasty sweet chestnut! If I had one negative comment it is that there were a number of dogs 'off-lead', and this can be off-putting to small children (and adults) if... More

Situated just north of Ipswich Town centre this is an absolute contrast to a rather litter strewn town. Fantastic in autumn and brilliant in spring - you could be anywhere!

Every year Ipswich Borough Council hold their Ip Art fortnight with Ipswich Music Day, Global Rhythm and Ipswich Mela in Christchurch Park. It's generally the first two weekends of July and really worth a visit. The park really comes alive with live music and people generally having a great time. If you're in Ipswich in July you should look out... More

So much to see and experience in a small space. There are few parks that can rival this one. Not to forget that this was given to the town by a wealthy benefactor who saved the mansion and its grounds from being turned into a housing estate.
