Parks & Open Spaces

All Parks in Didcot are now open. We ask that you try to socially distance as much as possible and to wipe down the play/gym equipment with an anti bacterial wipe before and after use.

The Town Council look after and maintain a number of Parks, Gardens, Play Areas, Green Open Spaces and the Town Cemetery. If you have any questions regarding the Parks, Gardens or Lakes please contact us.
