  • A few parks are scattered in and around Oxford the ones down by the river are the nicest like Merton field, well worth a wander and pick your own favourite.  more »
  • The weather was not perfect when we visited being a bit damp and foggy but the area was well look after and it was pleasant to break away into some calm greenery  more »
  • University Parks offers a green oasis a short walk from Oxford’s Centre. Originally owned by Merton College, the Park was purchased by the University in the 1850s and laid out as a Park for sports...  more »

  • Lovely on a sunny day. The pen spaces are well laid out and offer some shade from mature trees. The path by the river is busier and has some benches and picnic areas for the punt occupants. There are tennis courts and a public restroom further in and wide open spaces for recreational sport.
  • Beautiful park in the city, not far from the centre. The well kept paths make it really easy to walk or run around. You can walk down to the Thames and watch people punt in the summer time. There are plenty of benches, including one dedicated to J.R. Tolkien. There are also various spaces for sports. Overall a really beautiful green space to forget you are in the middle of a city.
  • Very nice walk with the the River Cherwell at the bottom end. So many different shrubs and trees from all over the world planted. Also a pond too. Relax in a quiet place and let the world go by.
  • Good place for picnic with the family or just break from work. I use uni park for a dog walk every day. Also uni park is the best place if you are interested in photography.
  • University Parks good pitches for sports, and these days for me would be more used for good walks along the River and through the shaded tree areas. Definitely worth a visit when in Oxford.
