Parking in Summertown

I want to take my sons to the watermeadow on the other side of the Cherwell from Wolfson College this summer, as I have fond memories of it.........

I expect that there are parking resctrictions all over Summertown these days, so can anyone give advice of where to park (and hopefully for free?)

You can find free parking spaces down some of the residential side streets away from the shopping area. There are normally time limitations though.

As a Summertown Resident may I suggest that looking for free parking of more than 3 hours is not going to happen unless it is the weekend. There is very limited three hour street parking - and it will take ages to find a free space during the week. Best bet is the Park and Ride from Peartree (just off the A34) and bus directly to Summertown or Town Centre

I would recommend calling Wolfson College and asking them if you can park on site. They may allow it if it's off season.
