A bit away from the centre of Oxford but don't miss coming here. Stepping into South Park you will feel transported into another world altogether. You can come, put your feet up on the grass and soak in the beauty of the place. It's another place which I feel should be rated higher on Trip Advisor

A peaceful medium size park on the outskirts of the city, but within walking distance of the city centre, consisting mainly of trees and grassland. Its main feature is the stunning stunning hilltop view of Oxfords skyline with its towers and spires. Adjacent to South park is Headington Hill Park, which also makes for a pleasant stroll.

If you visit the park and walk up the small hill to the top you have some excellent views of Oxford and get some great pictures. Good play area for the children so great family park, offers more for the children than the university gardens.

Good open space for a frisbee and a kick-about. Very occasionally has bands playing there, but they really need to do this more often to make the most of it.

If you visit South Park take a walk to the top of the hill. It offers a wonderful view of the city and the surrounding countryside! If it is a sunny day South Park is a wonderful place for a picnic, it will fill up with students during term but the park is large and offers plenty of room.

This is a lovely open space in a bustling city. No cafe, no stores etc, just a natural open space! Unless you in during one of the brilliant events! It has the best fireworks display I've seen. It has fairs and food festivals. Its also brilliant for sledging, but get there early because of the crowds. A really lovely place... More

A great park with a hill to walk up for great views of Oxford's spires. On a sunny day its busy with students having picnics and playing frisbee. At the top of the park is a nice playground which suits different ages. There's a tyre zipline type thing which is lots of fun for bigger ones. On a snowy day... More

This very large area of grassland has been left untouched in the headington area for the people of Oxford and as a place for picnics and games for a group of friends it is ideal. There is more then enough space for many people to come here so you should not be lacking to find a spot for yourself. There... More
