Marina Park – without wellies

March 27, 2014

Marina Park
This is the first time that I have been down to the Marina Park for quite some time.
Marina Park
I see on the Marina web site that “Abingdon Marina is the only off river marina with floating pontoons upstream of Reading” and that “we are only 4 days hard cruising from the tidal reaches of the Thames.”

There is a tree down in the park, and the paths are a little slippy. But after much of the winter under water it is now walkable without wellies.

It is one of the locations I usually get pictures of the Head of the River Rowing, which this year is on April 6th. There are 4 divisions with a maximum of 90 boats in each …
Division 1 – 09.30
Division 2 – 11.45
Division 3 – 14.00
Division 4 – 16.15

    The Vale contractors are apparently awaiting improved ground conditions before they can remove the tree The footpaths are also on the schedule to be swept.

    The tree has been removed. The paths are still really muddy and slippery.
