  • Beautiful and very well maintained, this park is to visit during a trip to Oxford. Beautifully clean and flowery. Some benches are dedicated to big names, which makes the fun walk. The mind is relaxing and sharing.

  • 'The Parks' has many attractive flower beds, tree lined paths with small, wood-like sections, a river running down the East side where people punt, a large pond full of ducks and other water birds, lots of benches, a beautiful sports pavilion which in the summer has a small cafe attached, and there is a public loo next door. The Parks offer long circular walks for anyone who wants to exercise. University members can apply to play tennis on the grass courts in the summer, when there are also cricket matches which attract spectators. Many University sports teams use the Parks for matches too.
  • Beautiful parks, very well maintained. Bikes not allowed (and they enforce this). Peaceful place to take a walk or jog. Good place for a picnic. You might even be lucky and see a group of posh kids playing quidditch (I kid you not!)
  • Somewhere to walk on paths or grass, kick a football or enjoy other games, jog (No bikes in the park) and other exercise for you, children and dogs. A place to contemplate, picnic, view the array of trees, plants, and shrubs or just watch punting from the river bank, sports, ducks and swan on the pond. Easy access to abutting E side of the Rokiver Cherwell and Mesopotamia via which you can walk to Oxford centre over Magdalen Bridge or North to the Victoria Arms overlooking the river bank in Old Marston.
  • Beautiful, well-maintained, sprawling parks owned by the University. Great spot for a picnic or the sport of your choice, or just a delightful walk. Note that no bicycles are allowed even if not ridden!
  • Large park close to the centre of Oxford bordered by the river Cherwell. Ideal for relaxing, strolling around and picnics. Some circular jogging routes are well used.
