After a relaxing coffee and a cake at the coffee shop in Christchurch Mansion….a pleasant walk around the Christchurch Park gardens was next. This fairly central green heart and lungs of the town is spacious and well laid out including well stocked flower beds and an arboretum with numerous attractive trees. It includes the splendid smart war memorial and plenty... More

A really lovely, huge park right in the middle of town! Wonderful place to walk the dog, have a picnic, children's playground, tennis courts, clean toilets, cafe for snacks, drinks, ice cream etc. Plus the historic Christchurch Mansion in the park which is free to visit.

It's a vast open space, more or less right in Ipswich town centre. It's free and is always worth a nose around.

A beautiful well laid out park, duck pond and plenty of space to sit and relax. It also has a tea room with outdoor seating. A lovely place to relax if the weather is good and the kids will love the space itcaffords.
