Beautiful open space

Lovely for walks at all times of the year. This is a very big green open space with lovely woodlands to explore. There is also a children's playground and coffee place.

HolyWells Park is one of the best parks in Ipswich. It has had a big donation given from the lottery fund therefore they have used this money to revamp the play area. The park has lots of areas to walk your dog in and also a lovely coffee shop. If in the area this is the park to go to.

I've been using this park for the last 8 years either as a place to take my son or as part of my running route. The volunteer group have worked so hard to make this, in my opinion, the best part in Ipswich whether it's for a quiet stroll, snacks in the cafe or as a place to take kids.... More

If you're in Ipswich but cant get to the countryside then its a good place to be, lots of space to wander, a fantastic play area if you've kids, and an acceptable cafe (slightly lacking in service)

We dressed up with our warmest outdoor gear for what we expected was going to be a fresh afternoon stroll. Needless to say the afternoon sun together with a slight breeze made for a very pleasant walk, no hats required! It was our first time in the park and we found it very well kept with wide footpaths and very... More

Hollywood park is an amazing labyrinth set in an area of natural beauty. Things for all the family to do or a great place to go just to chill out.

Fantastic, pretty park. The children s play area is great. We visited many times in the summer. The park is always clean to. Parking I think can be a bit of a struggle, but there may be places that I am unsure to go as I am not from Ipswich.

An oasis in the middle of town - a great place to run, walk or sit and contemplate. Great area for the children, plus lovely tea rooms in the converted stables. There is also a bicycle workshop on site which is run as a charity, to repair your old bike, or to buy a reconditioned at a bargain price. Fitness... More
