Athelstan Recreation Ground is an inter-war park laid out on former fields as the area south of Kingston town centre was being developed from the early-20th century.
The park's name recalls the Anglo-Saxon King Athelstan, who was crowned at Kingston in 925 AD. The town gets its name for once being the residence of Surrey under-kings, as well as of King John, and reputedly 7 Saxon kings were crowned here although this number is disputed.
