As you can see - the benches are enjoyed by many of the people who visit the park - giving them a chance to stop and appreciate the wonderful space around them.
This bench overlooking the round pond was provided by the family of Irmgard Ortiz - who had the wonderful nickname of Nanny Tortoise!
This bench commemorated the 161/196 Field Ambulances from the Royal Army Medical Corps - especially those taken Prisoner of War in the Far East. Their stories are told in an interesting website here
I haven't been able to find out anything about ST Baylis - but like how they have provided the bench For his love of Ipswich.
