The park is beautiful. It is quite large and has a number of paths you can take. The park has been laid out with a pond area, open area, forested areas and a play ground for young children. Also the trees in the park are amazingly tall. Unfortunately the park lost a couple of these trees during a storm recently.

Beautiful, big park that is well maintained and laid out. Great place to walk the dog. However, I rarely go these days because of the unwelcome types it seems to attract these days, from the flashers and the drinkers to the druggies shooting up in the public toilets.

This is a massive and beautiful park in the heart of Ipswich, perfect for a stroll, walking the dogs or jogging. It has a big pond with ducks, big trees, squirrels and you can find inside Christchurch Mansion, one of the highlights of Ipswich!

I live near Christchurch Park and it has a wonderfully diverse range of park users. It is good for walks, wildlife, people watching and for petting the huge range of dogs who receive their daily walk in the park. It also has plenty of interesting features, both natural and otherwise. As a 'free' attraction, it is impossible to criticise.

Weather was lovely at the time I visited, so I had a leisurely stroll through the park, which was nice. Something to do if you are travelling to Ipswich for a visit.
