Best Free Parks in Oxfordshire and Berkshire
What’s better than a great play park to have a good run around in. Sometimes, just trying a new park whether it’s large or small is a break from the one around the corner and brings it’s own novelty. We’ve got lots listed on the website, but here are a few of our favourites.
- Abbey Meadows (Abingdon)
- Cuttleslowe & Sunnymeade Park (North Oxford)
- Leys Recreation Ground (Witney)
- Kilkenny Lane Country Park (near Witney)
- Alexandra Gardens (Windsor)
- Look Out Swinley Forest (Bracknell)
Museums and parks are the most obvious ideas for a free or very low cost day out but there are other places too which can add variety for your days out.
