“Good views”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Nothing special about this biggish grassy area apart from good views of the city's spires and towers.

“A green bit of Oxford”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We love to go here in the Summer months for a walk and a game of rounders. its so relaxing and not far away form Headington Hill park which we also visit. Its easy to manage both in the one afternoon. South Park also holds numerous events during the Summer months so keep a look out for Whats on.

“Cowley Road Carnival”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Nice open space set on a hill in the centre of the city. The carnival was a fun day, with great stalls and floats.

“Beatuiful View, Bursting with Life”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

This park has a lovely view of the city, with a nice, open area that you cannot get in the center of town. You can enjoy the view of the spires without feeling crowded, even during Spring and summertime when the park is very popular.

“Stunning views!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

What better views of oxfords dreaming spires could there be? This park is just beautiful! If you get a chance try and visit the Fireworks display run by the local round table. They also have food fairs and concerts throughout the year.
