The Oxford University Parks, commonly referred to locally as the University Parks, or just The Parks, is a large parkland area slightly northeast of the city centre in Oxford, England. The park is bounded to the east by the River Cherwell, though a small plot of land called Mesopotamia sits between the upper and lower levels of the river. To the north of the parks is Norham Gardens and Lady Margaret Hall, to the west the Parks Road, and the Science Area on South Parks Road to the south. The park is open to the public during the day, and has gardens, large sports fields, and exotic plants. It includes a cricket ground used by Oxford University Cricket Club.

  • Gorgeous park with the most beautiful rose gardens. We had our wedding photos taken here and they are just gorgeous. Great kids playground too.

  • Amazing park for picnics, summer drinks and gatherings with friends. Parking is a bit chaotic and very difficult to find a space if you don't get there early enough. There's a few shaded areas under the trees and some very pleasant views of the surrounding gardens and city skyline. Markets are not too far away at the weekend and there's several children's playgrounds, toilet facilities and places to explore. Definitely one of the highlights near the CBD!
  • Great park for a picnic with friends! We recently had a group of about 20 people gather for a Christmas picnic. We arrived early to get a spot on the water under one of the trees. Still lots of parking if one gets there early. Views lovely, river breeze helps on a hot day. The Powerhouse is right there should one wish to visit, and the coffee cart is still going in spite of all the roadwork & improvements underway. Would be even more amazing if the toilets are upgraded, as they're not pleasant especially on a busy day. Well worth going to the park, though!
