Very nice scenic walk and very educational as well with all the wildlife and nature in view. It can also be a nice run if taken care while running as uneven floor. Really nice to have practically on my doorstep.😊

Lots of pathways through beautiful wooded areas with interesting sculptures that just appear unexpectedly. Wildlife especially around the pond. Easy parking and often leaflets/ map available at the entrance.

Within the last year my wife and I have included Oakhill in our collection of weekly walks. Parking is adequate, off Tom Pudding Way. In wet and wintry conditions the access track alongside the Tesco depot can be very messy, with mud and deep puddles....More

There is a flat, open area on the approach to the wooded reserve and here people exercise their dogs freely. But I would advise that once in the woods, for the sake of the wildlife, dogs be kept on the lead.
