Kidwells Park covers 3 hectares and is located just outside Maidenhead town centre. The Park caters for a wide range of users – residents, visitors and those working in the Town. It was was gifted to the town on 23 July 1890 by J.D.M. Pearce, who was the Mayor of Maidenhead five times between 1856 and 1890, and there is a commemorative sign outside the park to recognise this.
A Green Flag was awarded to Kidwells Park in July 2012 for the fifth year in recognition of achieving the national standard for parks and green spaces in England & Wales.
Improvements were carried out to the Bad Godesberg Way entrance including realigning the path to protect the mature plane tree and install uplighters, and more recently in 2021 a new crossing along Bad Goseberg way was installed to allow pedestrian traffic from the Premier Inn side directly into the park, close to the Skate Park.
In 2011 work was carried out to install a waterfall & ‘babbling brook’ in the centre of the park. The waterfall features a bridge, ornamental planting and is lit up at night.
J.D.M. Pearce was the Mayor of Maidenhead five times between 1856 and 1890.
Pedestrian Access to the Park is from Cookham Road, St. Lukes Road, Marlow Road and from the town centre via an underpass on the A4 Bath Road, and more recently from a pedestrian crossing close to the Premier Inn, across Bad Goseberg way.
