I walk through Christchurch Park often usually on my way to work. The scenic route is appreciated but it's when I visit with my daughters that I really take it all in. We last visited 28/4 and found the park to be well looked after, very tidy and the child's play area is fantastic. It's one of the few parks... More

So much to explore, as well as discovery centre and playgrounds for children. If you can visit with a guide, that is a bonus.

lovely park in the middle of Ipswich - such a contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city - nice walks with a variety of scenery from walking round lakes and ponds with ducks etc to rolling grass - very well used with walkers, runners and sunners Parking can be difficult though

I have been coming to Christchurch park for as long as i can remember. Learning to ride my bike there and many other memories. I still walk through and walk the dog everyday. The bit i love best is that i'm yet to find another town with a park as lovely as ours.

So close to the centre of town, and yet beautiful trees and large open spaces. Clean and well kept, no litter problems when I have been there, children can run around, great play area for them too. Nice easy paths for pushchairs etc. Great to walk through on the way into town and sit and drink a coffee after shopping... More

The park is really big, has tennis courts and has a children's play area in its centre. It has a lot to offer in terms of beauty and holds lots of events throughout the year.

Took my grand son on a cold winter day but found lots to do.The park has a large pond, a lovely play area and indoor facilities too.It is hilly in a town mostly on the level and that could be a problem for people with mobility issues.
