Green, open spaces are in abundance throughout Norwich. There are more than 25 parks, gardens and recreation grounds which are also open-air venues for musical events, sports and play-schemes.

Norwich parks have an important role to play in providing leisure facilities. Many woodlands and marshes close to the city are now nature reserves and there are riverside walks by the Wensum and Yare.

Archery was practised on the site of Chapelfield Gardens in the 16th century. The present gardens were opened to the public in 1880.

Close to the centre of the city, the park is a popular meeting-place and boasts a breathtaking display of crocuses in the spring.

There is a toddlers' play area with games of petanque, giant chess and draughts played in the summer months when the gardens are often used for different outdoor events. A disabled toilet is provided.
