Our Edwardian Gardens
Coronation Gardens commemorates the coronation of King Edward VII in August 1902. A local paper called it “Wandsworth’s new lungs”.
Sir William Lancaster (1841–1929) was an English businessman, philanthropist and politician, the second Mayor of Wandsworth (1901–02) and the co-founder of Putney School of Art and Design.
Mayor William Lancaster gave the land (Coronation Gardens) to be a public park and his sisters donated the granite drinking fountain.
The drinking fountain is described as rough hewn granite with Art Nouveau-style bowl and ornamental railings to one side.
“Make the space we all use a better one”
Coronation Gardens is a beautiful, Edwardian green space set in Southfields between Merton Road, Pirbright Road and Standen Road, London SW18.
The Friends of Coronation Gardens is a not-for-profit organisation set up by 8 local residents who want to see the Gardens we love improve and make safe again. With the support from the neighbouring schools, residents and Clubs we can make a difference.
This website has been set up to keep you informed of any news & events in Coronation Gardens and for you to support the group with membership, sponsorships and donations.
