Love Christchurch Park, Its a great afternoon with the kids - best of all its free! The kiddies play area has recently been re-done (least it looks recent). We took a BBQ along and it was wonderful my only wish is that they replace the large slide that was here when I was a kid.

Large park, with great walks and lawns. Ideal for pinics. Great for young and old. Children will love feeding the ducks on the duck ponds and playing in the childrens park. Toilet facilities available. Christchurch Mansion is situated in the park. Lovely old building that house an art collection, as well as traditional furniture of the period.

Take my 2 year old here as it keeps him entertained for hours all at no cost! Wonderful open spaces. Play area ideal for his age. Lots of wildlife and nature for him to discover. Toilet facilities clean. Always enjoy visiting.

We enjoyed walking through Christchurch Park. We didn't get a chance to go into Christchurch Mansion because it is closed on a Monday. The war memorial is impressive.

many acres of park land and gardens to walk through with lovely playground and pond where they can feed the ducks. War memorials and a few sculptures to view as you wander round. Also a small visitor centre and café.

I can imagine many visitors to Ipswich don't even know the park exists, but you have to find it as it is a lovely place!

Had not been across the park for many years but pleasently suprised. Some money has been spent on improvements and a visitors centre. Glad to find the two duck ponds well kept as I remembered as a child. Lots of birds, squirrels and nature walks. Negatives the toilets just above the visitors centre were locked the last time I went... More

As a local of Ipswich if there was one place I'd like to take someone to that would show the beauty this county has to offer, it'd be here. This park is B-E-A-utiful, with plenty going on in the summer and plenty to see in the meantime. There are wildlife areas and water-fowl ponds and a big children's play area,... More

Fabulous park with very varied terrain. Visitor info boards make no mention of the fact that the Mansion is closed on Mondays, and the visitor centre toilets could do with slightly more frequent cleaning, but the park itself is delightful.
