Higginson Park image

Named after George Higginson, who campaigned in 1826 to keep this land free from building, Marlow's riverside park slopes down to the Thames and offers a variety of amusements. Court Gardens houses the leisure centre, with its swimming pool and gym facilities. There’s a theatre – keep an eye open for local plays, light operas and concerts – and a small museum opens at weekends. A good, modern café adjoins the very popular children’s playground, and you can hire boats or take a French Brothers cruise. Cricket matches are played in the summer, and the rest of the time families can picnic, kick a ball about or feed the swans. Many events take place during the year, including the French market and the Town Regatta and dragon boat festival – a fun and less frenzied rival to nearby Henley's.
