August Bank Holiday by the River Thames in Abingdon

August Bank Holiday
On August Bank Holiday the sun was out and so were the crowds by the River Thames in Abingdon. The pool and splash pad area were crowded.

There were lots of people down at Abingdon Lock watching the boats come and go.

A continuous stream of people crossed the weir both ways. At times people with bikes or buggies had to wait until the oncoming bikes or buggies had crossed. So riverside walks were well used.

The playground was packed. There were a few people playing pitch and putt, and even more playing crazy golf.

Only empty place was the tennis court.

A consultation with community groups and school children showed how they valued the riverside facilities in November 2014.

The last three ranked facilities are likely to be chopped by the Vale of White Horse District Council when they revamp the area. The crazy golf and tennis courts will become a larger play area. I have not heard what is planned for the pitch and putt.
