Chapelfield Gardens

Chapelfield Gardens is a Victorian public park in Norwich

It was designed by George Alden Stevens on an area used for public benefit since at least 1655. Walks had been laid out on it as early as 1746. Chapelfield Gardens is the earliest surviving ornamental public open space in Norwich and is a popular picnic spot, especially in the summer.

It is usually the venue for the Norfolk and Norwich Festival’s annual Garden Party, which tends to fall in mid-May every year. People come from all over to enjoy two days of free outdoor entertainment which can include circus acts, puppetry and family-friendly craft workshops.
