Entry is £2.70 per person and there is no booking required. If you have skates, please take them along as there are only a limited number to borrow.

Snow play

There may not have been much snow overnight, but the frosty start has left the town with a light, white coating.

Why not get out and take in the sights of Ipswich, get some fresh air and maybe encourage your children to take some photos?

Rushmere Heath, Broomhill Park and Alexandra Park are all ideal spots for a winter walk.
