Sir Nicholas Winton Memorial Garden

The Sir Nicholas Winton Memorial Garden can be found inside Oaken Grove Park.
It was opened on July 14th 2017 by Theresa May, then Prime Minister. It was created in honour of the Maidenhead resident, who helped arrange for hundreds of children to be brought to safety on the eve of the Second World War.

The garden features an ornamental pond and fountain, wild flowers and stones bearing quotes from Sir Nicholas, who died in 2015 at the age of 106.
