Chantry Park is on our side of town and we often use it for exercising the dogs. There is plenty of open space for them to run freely and, whilst the childrens' play area can sometimes be busy, we can soon leave that behind and find acres of room for them to enjoy themselves without interfering with anybody.

The building in the photo is the home of the Sue Ryder charity but close by is a lake with uneven pathways but worthwhile. In other parts of the park there could be opportunities to watch football and cricket at the appropriate time of the year.

There is one thing no one can deny about Ipswich, we have amazing parks. Chantry park being one of them. The kids play area is good and the park is huge. I also love the mansion right by the hadleigh road entrance. Top park!

With six entrances (Two car accessible and four walk through only), Chantry Park provides both man and beast a lovely setting for outdoor activities. 1. Parkland - 124 acres of both mowed and...

I take my family over here and it is very large and open for walks with the dog. Only thing is park runners on a Saturday morning running you over.

Spent most of my childhood free time playing in this park so decided to go for a walk with the dog and take my friend too as she hadn't been there. It was a lovely day and we thoroughly enjoyed the pleasant scenery. The nice thing for me was the wide tarmac road meant that I could easily go on... More

Very large area for enjoyable walks to see nature - The squirrels and birds. A local pond where you can take the children to feed the ducks. Medium sized play area with swings slides rope climbs and sand pits to keep the kids happy. Large green area for ball games. Dog owners are responsible and what I saw - cleaned... More

Ipswich positively oozes fabulous parks to visit. This one is no exception. Lovely walks; area for the kids; clean toilets; stunning ponds; a cafe, car parking, great place to walk the dog; established woodland areas; good seating; sports facilities; popular with joggers too.
