The recent sunny spell attracted many to this park but it probably has too little to attract the casual visitor when the weather is wet or cold.

I use CP for dog walking when I take my hound to work but thousands use it for recreation. Still well maintained and big enough to enjoy despite it's popularity

Christchurch Park is a lovely green space, a delightful place to walk with your dog & your loved one whether in the parkland, or strolling through gardens with its beautiful trees. Christchurch Park is certainly worth a visit.

This park is a family favourite, always has been. The mansion is great, the park is pretty clean & tidy & the kids play area is good. There’re some good wooded areas & secret pathways to explore too.

Worth going to visit the Mansion. They always have an exhibition to see. The Thomas Wolsey exhibition was excellent. Very friendly staff.

plenty of paths the walk and different aspects to look at. a place that can be busy but you still feel there is space to be alone with your thoughts and nature

a beautiful park, never crowded and a great excuse to park out of town and walk in, avoiding the parking charges.
