The Scented and Bandstand Gardens


The Scented Garden

The scented garden was created in 1956 by Chesham Rotary and included a shelter. It was renovated by the Chesham Society in 1993, when the disintegrating shelter was removed. The garden was intended to provide sensory stimulation for visitors to the park and originally was specifically intended to provide planting which would be attractive to blind visitors. The location is now partially shaded by mature trees that limits the plants will thrive in the area. 

The Bandstand Garden

The Bandstand Garden forms the backdrop to the Performance Space.  Over the last year the Friends of Lowndes Park have carried out a major pruning exercise on the roses and have replaced a number of the older plants which should provide a good display for the years to come.

The Friends of Lowndes Park have regular working parties to keep these gardens tidy.
