Absolutely beautiful gardens, well laid out and maintained. Be prepared to spend at least half an hour to an hour to walk around the whole thing (and take lots of photos).

After a delightful lunch in Ipswich, we decided to take a walk through Nerima Gardens. It was so nice to stroll through such a picturesque place.

Cute little zen-type area. Not huge but just a kind of delightful surprise. Paths (some concrete, some stepping stones) winding around little lake and stream with turtles and water dragons. Shady trees and bamboo clusters.

Lovely gardens in the centre of Ipswich. A great place to enjoy an hour or so getting away from it all and enjoying the relative calm of the gardens.
