Oxford's CutteslowepPark has been confirmed as a venue to host a Sport Relief Mile again this year.
On Sunday 23 March 2014 run 1, 3 or 6 miles around Cutteslowe Park and raise money for Comic Relief.
We are also looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help make the day a roaring success once more. If you would be interested please contact email@example.com.
The refurbished top pavilion at Cutteslowe Park was officially opened on 3 September 2013.
It is owned by Oxford City Council and is the home of Wolvercote Cricket Club and North Oxford Football Club.
The improvements include renovation of the changing rooms, official rooms, an improved multi-function room, new windows and doors and five new public toilets
The new toilets were installed in response to visitor comments who had stated that the toilets came top of their list for improvements.
This is the first pavilion to be refurbished as part of Oxford City Council's Pavilion Modernisation Programme which aims to modernise 12 pavilions and build a brand new facility at Grandpont Recreation Ground.
Cutteslowe and Sunnymead is the largest park in Oxford. It is located in the far north of the city. Location map.
There are regular bus services to the Park, run by the Oxford Bus Company (routes 2, 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D, 7D) and Stagecoach (17, 17A and 17C). The postcode is OX2 8NP (Northern end) or OX2 7XD in the South.
The Park is open 24 hours a day.
There are two car parks. One is at the north end of the Park on Harbord Road. The other is at the south end of the Park, off the A40 (heading towards Headington).

Oxford parkrun is a free weekly 5km event for runners of all standards.
It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run which can be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.
It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy the Park and get physically active.
Taking part is easy - just register in advance on the parkrun website by 6pm on the Friday before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once.
After the run, if you don't have to get off straight away, there will be the chance to socialise over a cup of tea or coffee at a nearby cafe, to swap stories about your run that day.
So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you're welcome to come along and join us.
