Friends of Marple Memorial Park

Marple's glorious town centre park with flowerbeds maintained by local volunteers.

Refreshments provided in the park by Coffee Bean Dream

The land for Marple Memorial Park was given in Memory of the men of Marple who fell in the Great War 1914 - 1918 and the laying-out was done by Public Subscription. The park was formally opened on 22 July 1922 with a Dedication Ceremony and Historical Pageant attended by thousands.

Friends of Marple Memorial Park began helping to look after the park in 2003.

In 2011 the group learned that the council were planning to grass-over the flowerbeds to save money and stepped-up to save them. Their volunteers now maintain all the fabulous flowerbeds, shrub beds, borders and benches in the park on their own.

The group has also led many successful projects to improve the park's facilities and will be delighted to chat to Open Garden visitors about their activities.

On Saturday and Sunday there will be a stall in the park for ticket sales and information. There are also public toilets in the park.
