Colchester's distinctive heritage is nowhere more apparent than in Castle Park. A site of national importance, this Victorian Park contains evidence of 2000 years of history and is a landscape moulded by the people of Colchester over many...more

Often visit this park for a relaxing walk at lunchtime when I am working in the area and it never disappoints. It is large so can do a decent walk, clean and very well kept. The squirrels keep you entertained as you watch them running...More

Love taking walks in this lovely park in the oldest town recorded in England. It's vast grounds offer a variety of terrain with a nice water way running through it.

It depends on which direction you approach from, but if your route is up East Hill (from the Harwich, Ipswich or Clacton direction, head up towards the bottom of the High Street (with Hollytrees Museum and then the War Memorial, on your right), follow the road left at the traffic lights, down Queen Street and turn 2nd left into Priory Street to the long car park there ( just under the old town wall). Ticket machines will display the charges. For Lower Castle Park on foot, retrace your route back up Queen Street, to the War Memorial and across into Upper Castle Park, take any of the paths down the hill behind the Castle through the park gardens, to where Lower Castle Park lies at the bottom.
There is also the Nunns Road Car Park (behind North Hill), which is closer, but I have never used that one. Hope those help!
