About Lowndes Park

Lowndes Park is a major historic feature of Chesham and was donated to the town in 1953 by the Lowndes family. Today, Lowndes Park spans 36 acres and is managed by the Council.

The lower park provides children's play areas, a multi-sports court, a skateboard park, the historic avenue (also a cycle route), public toilets and Skottowes pond. A series of free, open air concerts is staged in the bandstand area during July and August each year.

The upper park provides fantastic views across the town, excellent walking and its less formal management has created habitats for local wildlife. There is also a bowl barrow, which is an Ancient Scheduled Monument and known locally as the Rolling Pin.

To help you get the most out of the park, Chesham Town Council have produced two leaflets.The first highlights some of the interesting features of the park and its history and the second, a map of the park. You can download the first leaflet here (PDF, 370 KB) and the second, here (PDF. 470KB). Alternatively you can pick up a paper copy at the Town Hall.

The Friends of Lowndes Park were delighted and overwhelmed with the success of Lowndesbourne 2015. We are planning to make the 2016 event even better but to do this we are looking for classical musicians to perform a short 20 minute set during the day. Can you help us? If so then please go to the Contact Us page. Your support will be much appreciated.
