Attraction Information

East Town Park Countryside Centreis a country park to the east of Haverhill on the very edge of town. The 38 acre park is the centre for a network of footpaths that extend around Haverhill and along the old railway track, eventually linking up with the Stour Valley Walk. It's a woodland with a rich eco system and if you hit the Sturmer meadow on a summer afternoon you can more often than not find a variety of lizards snoozing on the log piles! Cool! You can also try the Old Railway Walk (or part of it anyway, it's very long) and see if you're in luck as regards swarms of orange tipped, speckled wood butterflies!

The park has many attractive mature trees which have been added to with a programme of new tree planting worth learning about, plus there's the fairly new willow maze which is still finishing filling out. The park centre is a converted stable block that contains modern interpretation against a background of rustic charm that most people enjoy. The car park and children's play area for 2 to 12 year olds are near to the centre which is convenient with small legs along and there is an easy access trail that takes you around some of the interesting features on the landscape where you can also spot some natural wildlife. A variety of events are held in the park throughout the year worth heading for with children, regular favourites including the Easter Egg Hunt and the Halloween Trail!
