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.

Beautiful historic building, only visited at short notice as we had got very bored very quickly at the Waterfront and were stuck as to how to fill the rest of the morning but so glad we did. Lovely setting in a park very close to the town centre.

Living in Ipswich, I have been to this park many times. It's a lovely green space right in the town centre. The park has many beautiful old trees, ponds and monuments, plenty of benches, good paths to walk on if you don't feel like running about on the grass. It's ideal for a picnic and there is a good playground... More

Park was very spacious and well patrolled by wardens. It is well laid out. Ducks were friendly! Nice ice cream sales point.

Beautiful park with several ponds and monuments, and plenty of grass to lie down on. It's the perfect place to have a breather and enjoy a picnic (if the weather allows it, of course).

I went there a sunny day with a great friend, we didn't realize how we relaxed that much! What a great park to have a walk or a nap. The next time I 'll take a ball with me!

An historic building which is now a museum. Didn't have as much time as we would have liked but what we see was excellent. Wonderful to stroll around.
