We visited many of the parks in the area through chance encounters, and all of them were beautifully tended and safe. We especially loved the walk along the Thames, an easy distance from the center of Oxford. Don't miss it.

Well worth a slight diversion north of the city to find this park and pick up one of the free leaflets at the many entrances. Fascinating to wander round this park lots to see and admire.

Rightly famous, the Uni Parks are a fabulous place to walk right in the centre of Oxford. And right next door to the best museum in the world,the Pitt Rivers!

Lots of wide open grassy fields, tree-lined paths, river and pond-side walks, and flowerbeds, all close to Oxford city centre. It's amazing how little noise pollution you get even a little way in here. Always nice to sit down with a book and chill on...More
