Brilliant park with lots to see. We spent about an hour walking round it and managed to see most parts of it. However I personally preferred Christ Church Meadows.

If you want a lovely and peaceful walk then you can begin at the Headington Hill Park and cross into the University Parks until you arrive at University Parks Road. From there you can visit the Natural History Museum or take a walk through the lovely city of Oxford.

Perfect to relax in when the weather is warm. Plenty of space for sports. Great running location and paths to follow.

A big park in the centre of Oxford. Has a free cricket ground where you can sit and watch for free. A beautiful river runs through the park which means there are several stunning bridges. It can be a long walk but there are shorter ways to walk around, just pick up a leaflet at the gate. There are many amazing trees and plants to look at. The old naked bathing spot, called Parsons pleasure! Is now closed and has been for years but will still raise a giggle among locals. There is nowhere to get a drink etc so make sure you take one. An ice cream truck normally stops outside on summer weekends and there is an art display on the railings. The best place around for a picnic!
