So close to the town centre but a real wildlife oasis. A good play area for youngsters of all ages. The Stables Cafe offers a wide range of food and drinks. The conservatory has been wonderfully restored to its origin glory.

This park is one of Ipswich's underrated attractions. Excellent kids playground with water feature (perfect in summer), lots of green space to run around or play games in, hills and trails for running, events, even a cafe! Highly recommended

We attended an event and the park was easy to find and there are plenty of side roads to park down so you don’t HAVE to park on a car park and pay, the grounds were clean and tidy, good day had by all

I really like this park, it keeps going on. It’s got a great play area though I’m a little big for that. A cafe which has a good selection of drinks and cakes.
