Agnes Riley Gardens

Pond Agnes Riley Gardens

A medium sized public open space located between Clapham, Balham and Streatham.

Agnes Riley Gardens is located on what used to be the grounds of Oakfield House, which was owned by a Mr. Frederick Riley, who then donated in 1931 to the public in memory of his wife Agnes after her death. It was laid out as a public open space in successive stages between 1938 and 1954.

Agnes Riley Gardens contains a children’s playground, a paddling pool, two multiuse games areas and a community garden which is managed by the Friends of Agnes Riley Gardens.

The rest of the site is landscaped with lawns, trees and herbaceous beds. It also contains a small pond at its centre, probably a remnant of the original gardens of Oakfield House, which is now managed for its wildlife interest.
