Milham Ford Nature Park

Milham Ford Nature park combines more formal play with natural play and a tapestry of habitats within its 3.8ha

The park is grateful for the support the Friends of Milham Ford Nature Park give to maintaining and improving the habitats.  

How to get there

There are multiple entrances to the park from Marston Road and Harberton Mead, OX3 0FL.

There are no car parking facilities, although buses run and drop off along the Marston Road.


Milham Ford Nature Park was once the school fields for Milham Ford Girls School. When the school closed in early 2000's the buildings and land were developed but the land remained as public open space.

New Marston Wildlife Group, and later the Friends of Milham Ford Nature Park were created and continue to help protect the site.  

Things to do

Alongside the formal play area, sculpture and seating take a stroll around the site and see what you can find.

Take a picnic and enjoy the open grass areas.

Sit and enjoy the wildlife that may appear.


If you would like to get involved and hands on, events and volunteer sessions are listed on the Friends of Milham Ford website.


The open grass areas are maintained with a mix of short and long grass helping to support the orchids that appear.

In the spring swathes of daffodils and crocuses appear adding a splash of spring colour.

The ponds attract common frogs and toads.
