    Late in the day, after visiting some neighboring Colleges, even if fatigue you win, take a tour around this vast park, which is a sum of gardens and sports fields where you can taste the oxfordienne life in what she can get more oxygenating. Because nature here is in the city, an integrated, protected element where you can see players of crickets in full training and admire the giant sequoias. And as surprising as it may seem, between the pond, its small island and the Rainbow Bridge on the River, it's almost a Japanese print that springs from the landscape. No doubt, at Oxford, the surprise is at the corner of an alley, a path or a Pavilion, guardian of these parks, introduction to a pastoral Symphony, dreams of a solitary Walker that would have appreciated a certain Rousseau.

  • It's a great place right next to the university to chill and hang out on a hot summer day. Really enjoyed it :)
  • Beautiful parks going down to a river. There's a cafe in the middle as well.
  • Lovely place for a walk, check out the duck pond in the north east and bring some seeds to feed the wildlife.
  • Best parks ever. Amazing for dog walking
  • I used to run in the park. In summer the place becomes lively when many people go there to either sun bath or lie in the grass.
