Clean, well tended gardens and parkland.

Great place for a picnic, lovely aspect and river walk. Not crowded even on a hot, August day. Try a gentle stroll in the evening and spot some deer as we did.

Adjacent to Christ Church college. Unparalleled walk along river to or from Folly Bridge. Many ducks and swans to feed. College barges and rowers to be seen. Fairly short walk to college gardens, All outstanding.

We visited on a balmy summer afternoon. There was a cricket match on e meadow, people were walking along the paths, the gardens were in full bloom. Just perfect!

The grounds of Christ Church are not to be missed - I was there in August and the flowers were blooming and looked picture-perfect!

I would highly recommend taking time to walk around the grounds, they are beautiful! Also, if you happen to be there while rowing is taking place down by the water it is a really fun activity to watch!

A beautiful, tranquil, picturesque walk near the river and some of the colleges. A lovely view of the botanical gardens. An oasis in a busy city.

Excellent place to sit with a picnic and watch the world go by. Great buildings to look at. Very busy but we still found somewhere quiet to sit

Although my visit was on a sunny Saturday in August and there were many visitors, one I was away from the entrance the walks were quiet and delightful including a stroll along the bank of the river. You can also find plenty of places to sit and relax to enjoy the surroundings.

Probably the loveliest bucolic views of Christ Church and Merton from this hidden park . In summer, the sound of leather on willow form the adjoining playing fields. At the far end is the river and punts a perfect spot for a picnic!
