In the 1920s it provided employment relief to an army of First World War veterans from Norfolk and today thousands of visitors still enjoy this beloved Norwich park.
For a city with green spaces and parks galore, Eaton Park stands out as a special place for many people living in and around Norwich.
It was opened in 1928 by Edward, Prince of Wales and in the decades since Eaton Park has grown with the addition of new features from playground facilities and tennis courts to a miniature railway and skate park.
But today we are winding back the clock to the 1990s for a stroll around its tree-lined paths and tranquil ponds.
Several of these pictures predate the Heritage Lottery grant of £4.2m in 1998 which funded major refurbishments across three parks in Norwich.
