It's a great little handy park right in the city with a restaurant, coffee/ice-cream stall and a playground. They do tons of events there like the food festival, arts and crafts, pop up theatre and fun-fairs etc Good sized open grass areas for picnics, they have a bandstand used mainly on event days. But is does tend to be a... More

We walked by Chapelfield Gardens this morning, and I remembered other times we had been there. A little oasis of green in the centre if this fine city. A place to 'come apart and rest awhile'. The Mexican restaurant situated in the park was a favourite of the children when they were young and lived here - good portions, and... More

This park is most useful for walking through on the way somewhere else to be honest. It has zero parking so can only be accessed on foot. However it is a nice spot to stop for a break on a sunny day whilst shopping, especially if the little ones are in tow.

After being horrified by some of the changes to Norwich, I was very relieved to find that the council has so far managed to avoid ruining these gardens. They are a real oasis in the centre of Norwich, completely unspoilt, and the bandstand is still as charming as ever. Long may these gardens continue to provide peace and tranquillity for... More

This is yet another example of great green space in Norwich's city centre. Unfortunately it is too often plagued by groups of bored youths and the drunks of Norwich who use the benches to sleep their indulgences off. They often have no qualms about leaving their trash where they squat either. That aside, there is a lovely park for the... More

The gardens are always a good walk for me as it means we are going to Pedros. Sited at the far end of the gardens this jewel of a restaurant is one of the best and busiest in the city. Without a doubt my favourite place to eat in Norwich . I have been eating here on and off for... More

We stayed in an apartment overlooking Chapelfield gardens. This is a lovely small tree lined park, just a couple of minutes walk from the Intu shopping centre. It's well maintained, with a bandstand, two play areas, one enclosed for toddlers, and a cafe selling hot drinks and ice cream. My three children loved playing in the park each day of... More

We took a stroll through Chapelfield Gardens one sunday morning as I relived my youth when I lived in Norwich for a few years. Back in the 90s there use to be days of live indie music and stalls selling teshirts, badges and beer! It's still a relaxing experience to walk through the park and sunbathe in the summer and...
