A great place to go for a walk even if you don't have a dog. There is on-site parking at a moderate cost, a cafe, toilets, a maze and a children's playground plus acres of space. Cafe open all year.

Children and families were clearly enjoying the facilities and possibilities for adventure in the park. For us, it was a base to walk around the Suffolk countryside and into the town without getting caught in town traffic. Parking charge was reasonable.
