Canons Park is a grade II-listed historic landscape and contains several listed buildings. The park was part of one of the grandest homes of 18th-century England, developed by James Brydges, first Duke of Chandos.
The George V Memorial Garden is a walled garden within the park, once part of the Duke’s kitchen gardens, and was completely redesigned in the 1930s. The garden reflects this period, with an evergreen structure accented by magnolia and other interesting tree species, flowering shrubs and seasonal groundcover. It features a central pond and fountain, framed by flowerbeds and overlooked by benches, and a sheltered pavilion.
