Tackley Playground

Tackley Playground

Date of Adventure: 31 Jul, 2023

If Tackley playground isn’t on your radar then it should be! It’s 100% in our top 5 parks and is full of modern and interesting play equipment including a climbing frame with monkey bars, trapeze swing, slide and climbing wall. A floor level trampoline is such a hit with the toddlers and the play-on combine harvester with slide is a dream! Little tunnels, sensory panels, climbing rocks, spinners, springers, swings and roundabout make this a busy little playground – and one for all ages and abilities.

Bring a football for a kickabout or game of catch on the vast field next to the playground, or maybe take in the beautiful walk we discovered around the corner, a bit of a local secret and well worth the trip.

Did you


The Oxford Canal starts at Hythe Bridge, just a few minutes from the city centre and railway station. Built over 200 years ago, dug by hand, it flows north out of the city, through Banbury, and all the way to Coventry.

Fancy buying me a ko-fi?
