The Council is responsible for the following:

 Queen Victoria's Garden, Batsford Road.  A beautiful well established park boasting many species of trees some of which are extremely old. The fenced off play area and the Youth Shelter caters for a wide range of age groups and residents and visitors alike can take advantage of the wide ranging equipment or just sit and relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Tinkers Close Play area (adjacent to Council offices).  A play area which caters for children under the age of 12. There is also a small playing field where children of all ages can play ball games, football and basketball. This is popular with families living at this end of the town.

Astroturf Pitch which is situated on Redesdale Place former allotment site. 

The Horsepool is one of the town's most beautiful amenities and is situated on the corner of Parkers Lane/Stow Road. The Council maintains this area with the help of a local contractor who ensures that the pond & surrounding vegetation remain in good order. The Council is anxious not to urbanise the area and is committed to keep the pond and wildlife as natural as possible. There are also several benches close by to allow residents and visitors to sit and relax.

Blenheim Meadows. This area has been leased by the Council for 250 years and yet another beautiful spot within the town.

Cemeteries.  The Council is the Burial Authority for the town and owns/maintains two cemeteries, known locally as the Top & Bottom Cemeteries, both of which are situated on the A44 – London Road. The Council also maintain "in good order" St David's Churchyard (which is closed for burials) a role they took over from St David's PCC) a few years ago. The Bottom Cemetery (just over the railway bridge going towards Chipping Norton on A44) is closed for burials. It boasts many lovely species of trees and has become a virtual arboretum.  The Top Cemetery, adjacent to the Cotswold Business Park, opposite the Fire Service College, is where all the burials now take place for all denominations. There is also a Garden of Remembrance for the burial of ashes.  There is also a Cross of Sacrifice, in the Top Cemetery, which overlooks the numerous graves of servicemen who lost their lives in World War II. This area is beautifully kept and maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.  The Committee assume responsibility and duty of care for both the Cemeteries and St David's Churchyard, the upkeep and running expenses which include grass cutting, maintaining the paths, tree husbandry, fencing & repair maintaining the Chapel of Rests and so on. The Cemetery Rules & Regulations booklet is kept up to date by the Committee, along with the Burial Fees.  The Clerk of the Council has responsibility for administering the paperwork relating to burials and for the erection of memorials, working closely with Funeral Directors and Memorial Masons. The Council are also repsonsible for the War memorial in the centre of the town.

Allotments.  The Council has three allotments sites in the town, University Site, Old Town.  Croft Site, Evenlode Road and Hospital Road Site. There are currently vacant plots on the Unviersity and Croft sites and a waiting list for plots on the Hospital Road Site.  Please contact the Clerk of the Council if you are interested in renting a plot.  The cost of an allotment plot (irrespective of size) is £20.00 per annum.

Town Centre Car Parking Area and Greens.  The Council maintains the car parking area and bus park in the centre along with the small greens that run adjacent to the A429.
