Key Considerations
  • Access width for vehicles: 3.1m.
  • When exiting via the main entrance off Botley Road the oncoming traffic is partially obscured by a slightly humped bridge so marshals may be needed to ensure safe egress of event vehicles
  • The park can flood during periods of prolonged heavy rain.
  • Park location
