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
I live close to this park so I am very lucky. I visit all year round so I experience it through every season. It has a wonderful array of beautifull trees and a river at the bottom where I have spotted Kingfishers, small Egretts and...More
Lovely park,with beautiful flower beds, always kept nice, my grandchildren love the park there. I try and go there when I can through different times of the year,nice to relax amongst the wildlife and the beauty of the park.
Went to look at the castle and came upon this park. The flowers were beautiful and there was gardeners spruceing it up. The castle was in the middle and next to a display with tanks and WW1 information.
We went to the castle museum (worth a visit too) and wandered around the castle park. The park has a friendly café and beautiful planted garden - especially for September! It was all well maintained and we spent a nice hour or two wandering around...More

I was instantly at the gates of this park and decided to...More

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!
