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.
News & Events
We have had reports of a pike in Skottowes Pond. We haven’t seen it, have you? Please report any sightings to us via the Contact Us page.
The next Friends of Lowndes Park working party will be on Sunday 9 June 2013. We meet at 10am in the Archena Garden which is next to the Temperance Hall in Church Street.
Why not come and listen to some great music in the Park this Summer. On a Sunday afternoon during July and August you can experience a variety of music including Jazz, Barbershop, Rock 'n' Roll and Traditional Brass Band and all for free. We would recommend you bring a picnic and a deckchair. For further details go to the Town Hall website
