Canbury Gardens
Lower Ham Road, Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, KT2 5AU

Canbury Gardens are Victorian in origin, and covers some 14 acres alongside the Thames north of Kingston; it is home to the Kingston Rowing Club and Sigi Cornish Tennis Club, and has a pub, the Boaters Inn. It also hosts Kingston's annual Green Fair.

In 1998 part of the park was converted into new residences, despite public outcry and demonstrations to save some 56 poplar trees!
