4 Peaceful Study Spots Around Oxford

Take your studies outdoors at UNCOMMON Oxford. Looking for parks near the University of Mississippi or beautiful sights to see in Oxford? Here’s a quick list of Oxford parks where you can add a natural vibe to any study session. 

The Grove

If you’re looking for a place to fit some reading in, have lunch, or meet with other students at University of Mississippi, visit The Grove. During the fall, the 10-acre lawn on campus might be full of excitement and football fun, but during the springtime the grass is green and the place quiets down. Spread a blanket out on the greens or grab one of the picnic tables and have a peaceful study session in between classes. 

Avent Park

Take your books and play royalty with an off-campus study event at Avent Park. The green space features a castle-like play structure, tennis courts, and disc golf. It has a nice serene atmosphere with plenty of fun to be had when you close the books for the day. Squeeze in some reading and then throw a few discs with friends afterward. You’ve earned it. 

National Forest’s Mississippi

South of campus you’ll find the Holly Springers Ranger District with access to one of Mississippi’s National Forest boundaries. If you have a lecture you need to listen to or are quizzing a friend for a test, do it on the trail to get some steps in. The wide pathways provide ample space for bicyclists and walkers to stroll through nature and take in the local flora and fauna. 

Lamar Park

If you’re looking for a waterside park to squeeze in a serene study session, head to Lamar Park. There’s plenty of growing trees and picnic tables with views of the lake and beautiful landscaped greenery. When you need a break you can wander the walking paths around the park and enjoy the garden installations when they’re in bloom.
