Canbury Gardens

Canbury Gardens is one of Kingston’s most prestigious and best loved parks, with its landscape reminiscent of formal Victorian gardens mirroring much of the architecture of the surrounding Conservation Area.

This linear town park is situated in a designated Strategic Area of Special Character and within the proposed Thames Policy Area. Canbury Gardens is also identified in the Greater London Development Plan as a major open space and an area of High Landscape Value.

The park is subdivided into a series of linked spaces each with their own character providing the opportunity for a wide range of activities in the park including a formal area with tennis courts, playground, outdoor gym, community pavilion (a hub for community events in the park) and a bandstand that plays host to a free music calendar during the summer months.

Canbury Gardens also has a public house, the Boaters Inn, situated within, which overlooks the River Thames on the site of the original barge cottage and boathouse.
