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.

There is an open space, which is all that can be said about it. Short grass and not much else. It could be used for team sports or sunbathing.

Wonderful open space spoilt by the fact that large groups of students seamed to think it wasn't necessary to put rubbish in the bins after they had eaten which at the end of the day were plentiful.

Huge grass but too crowded and dirty envirionment. The neighborhood also seemed creepy and unsafe to me. Will not visit here again.

A great space that nearly always has something going on. You can sit and have a picnic or just rest and watch the world go by.

It's a relatively small green space and, as we come into the summer, is frequently filled with people playing Frisbee, table tennis, tennis etc, or using the barbecue stones for a BBQ. Delightful space and quieter than the centre

Great place to work out, relax, get some sun, or hang out with friends on a nice day. They also have grass tennis courts which are fun!

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.
