Coronation Gardens is a beautiful, Edwardian green space set in Southfields between Merton Road, Pirbright Road and Standen Road, London SW18. The Gardens commemorate 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. It is an historic Edwardian park with a formal path network.

 

Tree features include a central ring of mature London planes, an avenue of horse chestnuts, and another line of planes. A fruiting orchard was recently added. It is overlooked by two listed buildings, Riversdale School and Tiffany Heights.
