There are some very peaceful places to enjoy a little tranquillity, including Cherry Orchard, by the Cemetery. The River Ouse to the south and east of the town has water meadows bounded by Clifton hills and this creates a large area of attractive landscape, where you can walk and picnic.
The Recreation Gound in East Street is a popular place for leisure time and has a children's play area. Emberton Park to the south of the town was created in the 1960’s from disused gravel pits.
There is a caravan and camping park as well as a sailing club located within the park. The lakes provide fishing and there are two children’s playgrounds.
