Marple Memorial Park

Marple Memorial Park was built on land donated by local families and opened in 1922 to commemorate all the Marple soldiers who died during World War 1. It's at the heart of the local community, housing the library, health centre and other public buildings.

The park provides a wide range of outdoor facilities for all ages including a skatepark, play areas, multi-use games areas, a bowling green, French boules court, tree sculptures, sensory gardens and many heritage features.

On a clear day there are stunning views of the Peak District hills. The park is a good starting point for local walks or for exploring local history.

There's limited mobility access but most parts of the park are wheelchair accessible on tarmac paths.

Toilets are available during park opening hours. There are no disabled facilities.

There are dog restrictions in some areas of the park. Please clean up after your dog.
