You'd think because it's just a park, things to do would be limited but that's far from the case. There are many hidden little gems in this huge park! So many different areas to explore until you find your own unique favourite part! Mine is the steep hill which leads down to the concealed large bird pond

Well worth a visit. We are very lucky to have this park a few minute stroll from the town centre. Also has concerts and the free ip-art Ipswich Music Day hosted there.

Christchurch Park is very large and beautiful with so many different areas to wander in that it is never crowded and always magical in all seasons.. free tennis courts, the mansion, an arboretum, wonderful, magical and something for everyone.

if you are visiting the town then this park should be on your list - several acres of land on various levels that also hosts a magnificent duck pond, an arboretum, the town war memorial, and the most impressive Christchurch mansion (now used as a museum). Events include one of the largest free music festivals in the country, cultural fairs... More
