“Love it here!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

A fantastic place for the whole family.
My 2 year old really enjoys the play area as it is very large and all enclosed which makes me feel more comfortable when he is toddling around. Plenty of benches and open space to enjoy a picnic.
It is a great place to go for a walk as there is so much wildlife. The pond is lovely including the resident ducks and new addition of ducklings!
Particularly enjoy it in the Summer when the water play feature is on and the ice cream van is on site.

“Holywells Park”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Was surprised at amount of construction work in progress across the park. Should be great once all completed. Spent many happy childhood days playing here, good to see it hasn't really changed too much...although the "Big Pond" doesn't look as big as I remembered. Good play area for children. Will be back once work completed.

“HOLYWELLS PARK”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

The park was a real treat to find. Plenty of parking near by and free entrance into the park. Lots of work going on in the kids play area which looks really great. This park will lovely in the good weather as there is loads of room for picnics. There are also a number of ponds with lots of wildlife around them.

“Free and fantastic”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

This is such a lovely park and the children's play area is outstanding - when inside the park it's hard to believe that you are in the centre of ipswich !

“A park to visit”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

There are a quite a few number of species to visit in Holywells (I counted over 7 different species). You will also get squirrels and fish and frogs (later in the year). The 2 ponds now have some water restored as part of the succession prevention scheme, and it looks better then it did in December. There is a play area for kids, and there are enough alleys and benches to walk around. It doesn't feel like winter if it's a sunny day, with all the green that is around :)
