Beautiful park. Paths all around, near the river Cam. Many people about enjoying the area. Also where fairs and events are held.

We went through this field on a path, during a bike tour (with Cambridge Bike Tours). The overall tour was great, but Jesus Green wasn't particularly exciting -- just a nice green spot to ride through.

A wonderful escape from the busy city and only 5min away from the main shopping area. Beautiful old oak trees and lovely views onto the River Cam.

Very well presented park with a Lido pool, playground. Apparently also a bombing area too since they find the mortar dated WWII in the water run! My only problem is what on earth Cambridge does about all those Junky walking, sleeping among passants!

This open land near the river cam is so lovely . It is another great example of Cambridge's public park land. Visit this oasis within a busy city.

The best thing here is the Lido. Head there on a hot day to enjoy the 100 yard Lido pool with surrounding grass to loll around. There are ice creams to be had. Marvellous.

Sorry this is so late but I am afraid I do not know if there are any Tennis Courts. There are several "Greens" around the centre of Cambridge and no doubt one of them will have courts.
