Goring I


There are two parks in Goring and one tennis court. They are not obvious and you cannot see them from the main road through the village so to make it easy for you I have made a map. Just click here

There is some parking parallel with the train track along Upper Red Cross Road. Orientating yourself with the train station, turn left from the train station entrance, turn left again to go over the bridge and then take the first right hand turn. There were spaces on the right hand side. Failing that, there is actually rather a lot of public car parking in Goring and it is well sign posted. 

This first playground is for very small children. It was built as a memorial and has a touching plaque attached to the railings. 

There is a very large recreational field - the last time I was here I was 15 years old and snogging a boy called Daniel Gill, so it was with a nostalgic grin that I revisited this place!



My daughter is 8 and spent a whilst playing on this - most the other equipment was a bit too small for her. 


Lovely little climbing frame. 


Small swings.


'proper' slide. 



There are two of these. The other is a see-saw. 



Field with lovely view. 





Other stuff...

There is a village shop in Goring, a couple of pubs, and a couple of tea rooms and another pub across the bridge in Streatley. I shall get around to uploading some info about them soon.
