PGG visit to Oxford University Parks

Morning walk and talk tour; Inc. management, historical points of interest, and of course plants.
Afternoon tour led by Dan Holden, Arb Technical Officer, Inc. Tree and Risk Management, demonstration of PICUS equipment for internal monitoring of Tree health.
Offering an escape from the hustle and bustle of the City, but conveniently located right at its heart, is the green oasis offered by University Parks – with something to please everyone. This beautiful space, originally owned by Merton College, was purchased by the University in the 1850s and first laid out as a Park for sports and recreational purposes in 1864. Aiming to be available for the enjoyment of members of the University, local residents, and visitors to Oxford the park is open to the public almost every day of the year until dusk (the only exception being Christmas Eve) and boasts a choice of walks, a large collection of trees and plants and space for informal games and picnics.
