Hook Norton Playground
A good park for all ages
Here's another park for you that we visited on our park crawl.
We are so lucky that we have a ton of great parks locally and we're loving exploring them.
Hook Norton is a great park in the Oxfordshire village. We used to visit it when we were little as our Dad is a Hook Norton Bitter fan so we used to visit Hook Norton Brewery. I don't remember the park being as good as it is now.
We followed the Sat Nav and found it pretty easily. It is around the back of 'The Shearings' but it's a small cul-de-sac so we parked on 'The Bourne' and found a way in from there.
We were the only ones in the park when we got there which was a big bonus. It got a little busier but it was in no way busy and overrun with people at all.
There is different equipment that is aimed at all ages. There's something for everyone but I'd say that there's a little more for older children. My two loved it and they are 3 and 5.

Things to Watch Out For
- The big spider web climbing net is great but your little one would need to be a confident climber. It was fine for my 5 year old but my 3 year old didn't attempt it.
- The park is sort of fenced in but there is no actual gate on the entrance that we went in so watch out if you have a runner.
- There are signs everywhere asking that no food and picnics are eaten in the park at the moment due to Covid-19.
There are no toilets that we saw.
There is lots of grass and picnic benches within the playground but there are signs at the moment asking that no food or picnics are eaten in the park due to Covid-19.
Parking was easy. We followed the Sat Nav and parked on a residential street. Please be mindful of residents and park responsibly if you visit.
The park is a really lovely. My two loved it and it kept them entertained for ages as there was so much for them to do.
