Christ Church Meadow [brisk 15 minute walk to get here]

A truly beautiful and historic park situated right in the heart of Oxford, the meadow itself is a Grade I listed landscape. The War Memorial Gardens are located at the main entrance from St Aldates. Over a million people visit the Great Hall and Christ Church lawn each year, making it a very busy spot. The meadow is a great spot to observe the boat races and the rowers in training because Oxford's two rivers, the Thames and the Cherwell, run alongside it.

University Parks [various locations a short walk away]

The green sanctuary provided by University Parks offers something for everyone and provides a respite from the bustle of the city while being ideally situated in the centre of it.

Originally owned by Merton College, this lovely area was bought by the University in the 1850s and was set aside as a park in 1864 for athletics and leisure.

With the exception of Christmas Eve, the park is open to the public nearly every day of the year until dusk and features a variety of walks, a sizable assortment of trees and plants, as well as areas for unofficial games and picnics. Its goal is to provide enjoyment to Oxford residents, University members, and tourists.

Longbridges Nature Park [less than a 30 minute walk to get here]

Longbridges, where two minor backwaters of the River Thames converge, was formerly an open-air river bathing area. Today, it is a nature reserve. You can combine a stroll around the nature reserve with a lengthier walk along the Thames Path to enjoy the sights and sounds of the river and its environment.
