The park offers something for everyone. You could just walk around or jog up and down or sit and just enjoy the green grass.. The top of the hill is one of the best places in Oxford to get a view of the dreaming spires, particularly rewarding at sunset. You could let your tots roll down the hill too as the slope is not steep at all.
If you have children, then head up the hill to visit the children’s play area , which we loved because it has one of the best toddler assault courses I have come across. We spent most of our time there, trying to outdo ourselves by timing the time taken to complete it. With two children, it must be so cool. The play area is gated and also has a reasonably sized climbing frame with slide, swings, roundabout, little wooden house, zipwire and climbing/exercising apparatus for older kids. There was something else I had never seen before with two seats side by side sliding down a semi circular bars. It must be a lot of fun chasing each other down, but obviously is for older children
🗺 Entrances on Morrell Avenue (opposite Cross Street), Headington Road (opposite entrance to Headington Hill park), Cheney Lane and Warneford Lane (near the roundabout that leads to Divinity Road). If you want to head to the playground, then use the entrance on Warneford lane, which will also help avoid the hike up the hill
