This park is kept relatively clean, with regular park patrols. A football pitch, nice walks for dogs and an owl/wildlife watching outpost. Outdoor paddling pool open during high season next to large picnic area and outdoor play equipment with swings and a zip wire.

This park has two play areas, a paddling pool (open in summer). Adjacent to nature reserve. Clean and tidy, nice gardens. Toilets. Usually hosts activity days in the school holidays, check out the ipswich borough councils website for details.

Bourne park is great to visit in the summer months and the paddling pool is great. Would definitely recommend to those with young families.
