Upper Park Meadow Area
The narrow, western section of Lowndes Park is defined as a Locally Important Landscape Area in the Chiltern District Local Plan and the area is managed to encourage wild flora and fauna. The areas of meadow grass are also visually in character with the adjoining countryside, which is part of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The area is left as a large meadow area, accessible via wide paths, and is very popular with dog walkers, ramblers and runners. There are sinuous borders to the paths and areas of long grass left to grow around trees. There are spectacular and uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. The self‐sown oaks have been selectively removed to prevent uncontrolled woodland development.

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.
