Please note that in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 we have taken the decision to close Wolvercote Lakes until further notice. All our other green spaces remain open - click here for our latest update on COVID-19.
Upper and Lower Wolvercote lie at the northern edge of Oxford, within the ring road. The predominant feature which gives the area its character is the ancient Port Meadow which lies to the south of the villages between them and the City, providing its open, ancient and rural feel. It is just one of the ‘villages within the town’ that are a special characteristic of the City. Recently there has been considerable pressure to develop within and around the area making the open spaces that OPT care for even more special for the community and the people of Oxford who come to enjoy them.
OPT are lucky enough to own and care for 25 acres here – meadows, moorings, community orchard, allotments and, since 2013, our popular Wolvercote Lakes.
