The approach from St Aldates is impressive and colourful with well tended flowerbeds and well cut lawns. The walk around the edge of the meadows has splendid views of the river.

You would never know that you were in a busy college town by walking into the Christ Church Meadow. Beautiful flowers still blooming, cows grazing in the pasture, a few students studying under towering trees. Ivy and Maple leaves turning red, blue sky, so peaceful.

This is a lovely walk and leads to a relative oasis of calm after the bustle of St Aldates. Well worth a visit whatever the time of year

Pleasant walk through the Meadows, well kept pathways and lots of interesting boating going on. The trees were ancient and interesting to see.

They most certainly are allowed. We take our dog with us and yes we do keep her on the lead, only because there are ducks and sometimes geese walking freely along the river bank. Hope this helps
