Relaxing.

Taking a walk through the parks is a must to escape the hustle and bustle of Oxford city centre - a variety of colours even in October.

Great for a walk or a game of football witht the kids. The paths are clean and well maintained and there is plenty of space to run around! Often you can go and watch university sports teams for free (look out for quidditch) and there is a cricket pavillion in the middle.

Lovely place for a stroll with friends or the family. A wide variety of plants, trees and views to be seen as you wander along the often quiet tracks.

Very central, but seems remote from town, the Parks offers lawns, river walks and gardens. Worth visiting.

This is a great place to take young children as they can run around and burn up some energy. Not at all crowded as it's so spacious. Little ones can feed the ducks on the pond and enjoy a picnic.

A park with lots of green space, pond and a river. There is also now a small, reasonably priced cafe.

Oxford can be busy, feet tired. So relaxing in this park is the next step. Very nice, quiet as well - thanks to the huge area.
