Hidden gem in the middle of Ipswich. Beautiful walks and children's play area. The park is spotless and obviously very well cared for. Great day out for children and all free!

There has been a lot of money spent on this park in the last three years. There is a fantastic children's play area, plenty of area for walking, which is varied and interesting. A cafe and space for parking for the disabled. Well worth visiting.

I've always said this park has a really nice feel about it. The cafe area is friendly and airy with tasty food. The disability toilets are second to none.

There is a small car park from Cliff Lane. Down through the gates next to the Margaret Catchpole Pub, opposite the Stable block.
