Archena Gardens


Archena Gardens

The relief road, St. Mary's Way, was constructed in the 1970s and widened in the 1980s, to enable the High Street to be pedestrianised. During the construction of the road, a new brick wall and metal railing park boundary was erected. The entrance to the lower park from Church Street is named Archena Gardens after Archena, a town located in the Murcia region of south-east Spain, with which Chesham was twinned in 1995. Archena Gardens is comprised of footpaths, a small lawned area and shrubs.

Current condition

The Gardens are currently being tidied up by the Friends of Lowndes Park during their monthly Sunday morning Working Parties.
