Key Considerations
  • Access width for vehicles: 3.53m
  • There is limited access due to narrow residential roads – parking suspension will need to be arranged
  • If event organisers wish to utilise the whole site, permission to be obtained from the City Council and Oxfordshire County Council, who own part of the site
  • It may flood during heavy periods of rain.
  • Park location
