This was my first time here and a was impressed. Growing up, I had always gone to Christchurch park. I gave this park a try since I needed to go for a walk. Very nice park with a trail and water features. Close to the waterfront. A nice playground for the children.

This wonderful park is a true oasis of greenery in the middle of Ipswich. Lots of paths meander through it. There are various ponds, a children's play area with fountain, coffee shop and picnic areas. A beautiful place to visit at any time. I am blessed to have it on my doorstep.

This park is a few minutes from where we live and it's fantastic for a morning stroll. They've recently improved the facilities and they've done a great job.

This park is great for if you have small children (up to 10) for the water sprinkles and now they have built toilets near the park entrance which is a bonus

My children enjoy the splash water and I enjoying walking in the woods with my dog. Sitting on the benches enjoying the views and listening to the children play. The stables cafe is lovely and quite reasonable in price could do with being cheaper though.

Beautiful park but you feel very intimidated by the large quantity of drug users and dealers in the myrtle road entrance area ! Very disappointed as I have lived nearby for 12 years seen loads of work done there! Please get it sorted ,
