Parks and Recreation

The extensive network of public footpaths around East Hagbourne provide many opportunities to explore the countryside.

A map leaflet can be found here, and is also available for sale in the Village Shop for just 20p.

Butt’s Piece, at the end of Harwood Road has recently been leased by the Parish Council from the Hagbourne Charities.  Its development includes a flat, open grassed area suitable for informal ball games.  Nearby and just over the boundary into Didcot, Mowbray Fields provides another open and more undulating area, again suitable for informal play.

Butt’s Piece is also home to the allotments and to a wild area of scrub and coppice which is being managed by the volunteers of Hagbourne Environment Group on behalf of the Council.

The Recreation Ground at Great Mead, off New Road, is home to the recently modernised children’s’ playground, seen here in the picture at the official opening in 2009.
