King George's Park  
The park was originally called Southfields Park and was opened in 1923 by King George V. In 1938 the park was further developed and a swimming pool was added; further works were carried out after World War II. The River Wandle forms part of the eastern boundary of the park and there is a riverside walk, alongside which are ecological areas, and there is a small wildlife area within the park. Foster's Way crosses the park towards the southern end, named after Corporal Edward Foster of the 13th Battalion (Wandsworth) of the East Surrey Regiment, who was awarded the VC in 1917.
