Codmore Playing Field

Located on Botley Road (HP5 1XG), 0.75 miles from the town centre, the 7-acre playing field features football pitches, a cricket wicket and an enclosed children’s play area. It is also the scene of the annual Donkey Derby, a popular local fundraising event. The pavilion includes a social area and changing rooms. To book the playing field for organised activities, please contact us at the Town Hall on 01494 583825 (Monday to Friday 10 am to 4.30 pm) or email

We are working in partnership with the Botley Playing Fields Association to provide a new children's play area, with installation taking place in Spring 2016. The Town Council has committed £20,000 to the project and the Association has done amazing work to raise the remaining money, having achieved £57,000 by October 2015. The work will include new fencing, play equipment and picnic tables.
