Manston Park in Bicester offers a convenient location for locals, situated just across the road from Lidl. It is accessible via Boston road or Manston close, which are both residential areas, so please park sensibly if you come by car.
The playground, though small, is fenced on one side of a spacious field, ensuring that once children are in, they can’t escape. This setup provides ample room for leisurely strolls, ball games, and dog walkers. There is also a skate ramp on one side which looked quite tired and is in need of some care.
The fenced-in park features a large climbing frame with balancing beam designed for older kids, as well as a pretty good obstacle course, which we particularly enjoy. There is also a toddler-friendly frame, which has a small slide, baby and older swings as well as a cargo net. A highlight is the game station with a Naughts and Crosses game and a challenging marble maze, which we loved playing on. Additionally, the park includes a fast-paced roundabout that Ay loved.
Overall, Manston Park caters to various age groups with its diverse play equipment, making it a valuable asset for the local community.
