Parks & GArdens


The Town Council owns and maintains the Bull Croft, the Kinecroft and the Castle Gardens. 


Situated in the centre of Wallingford, the Bullcroft is a large park given to the town in 1912.

The Bull Croft includes two children's play areas, one enclosed and suitable for under 7s, the other suitable for older children. 

Tennis courts, basketball courts and football pitches are available to everyone to use free of charge. 

The northern end still has some of the original saxon banks and ditch which at one time surrounded the town. 


The Kinecroft is an area of open grassland that provides a home for events such as Bunkfest, the Festival of Cycling, the Classic Car Rally and Bonfire Night.
