Brief Description

The layout has little changed since the gardens opened, with original entrance gates on Merton Road; a path flanked by horse chestnut trees leads to a rough hewn granite drinking fountain with Art Nouveau-style bowl and ornamental railings, which was donated by the sisters of the Mayor.

History

Coronation Gardens were formally opened by the Mayor of Wandsworth on 4 July 1903 to commemorate the coronation of Edward VII in August 1902. The land had been purchased by the previous Mayor, Sir William Lancaster, who gave it to the people of Wandsworth in perpetuity.
