Where Are We?

There are 4 main entrances to the park, they are Cliff Lane, Myrtle Rd, Bishop's Hill and Nacton Rd. There is also an entrance via the kissing gate at the bottom of Cliff Lane, which is designed to be wheelchair and buggy friendly. (Please let us know if you encounter any difficulties.)

The Friends of Holywells Park is a volunteer group established in 2001.  We aim to increase local knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of Holywells Park, a 67-acre area of parkland near the industrial docks in Ipswich, County Town of the largely rural county of Suffolk, England.

Whilst the Friends of Holywells Park shares a common aim, and works in close collaboration with, Ipswich Borough Council, it is an independent body, serving the needs of members and visitors alike.

Enjoy the site!  We look forward to seeing you on the Park soon...
