Ace Marlow Playing Cards

Higginson Park

Formerly a garden dating back to 1758, this Green Flag park, has been a public park since 1926. It's a wonderful outdoor space and fine way to spend the day whatever your age. There's a large children's playground and a skate park which is open all year. The Thames Path passes through the park as it borders the banks of the Thames.

You'll notice the statue to Sir Steve Redgrave, the five gold medal winning Olympic rowing hero as well as many fine trees and large expanses of lawn with beautifully manicured flowerbeds and a brick-in-grass maze, created by Adrian Fisher to mark the Millennium. It offers indoor and outdoor catering, as well as public toilets too.

The house and its immediate grounds were purchased by public subscription in 1926, with the grounds becoming a public park called Higginson Park, dedicated to General Sir George Higginson. He was a veteran of the Crimean War and native of Marlow, and he celebrated his 100th birthday in June 1926.
