Now that 6 people can meet outdoors we are expecting to see increased use of our green spaces.  We are therefore very grateful to the Peking University HSBC Business School who have agreed to provide temporary free weekend parking at Boars Hill (please follow the signs).

Open green space is essential for our health and wellbeing, and we are delighted that more people than ever are now out and about enjoying OPT land.  With our commitment to the green agenda, OPT have no car parks, so why not take a cycle ride or a long walk.  Help us to keep our environment, our wildlife and you safe by considering a visit outside likely peak times.  All our green spaces are open. 

Help us to continue looking after these valuable green spaces by JOINING or making a DONATION now.

Welcome to the county’s most spectacular view of the dreaming spires

This was the very first piece of land bought by OPT, acquired in 1928 to preserve the stunning view of Oxford which at the time was threatened with the possibility of housing development.

This spot is really very special and provides one of the best vantage points to enjoy uninterrupted views over the city of Oxford. 

Once Lord Berkeley’s private golf course, the fields are now unimproved grassland, grazed by sheep and cattle.  The area is an environmental and cultural gem and continues to attract and inspire painters, photographers, poets, and occasionally film crews.
