Holland Garden is secluded open space located in the west of Wimbledon. It is accessible from Cambridge Road, Pepys Road and Cottenham Park Road.



Holland Garden was a gift to the people of Merton from Lady Holland in 1928, in memory of her husband Sir Arthur Holland, who founded Wimbledon and Mitcham Library and was President of Wimbledon Football Club. The Holland family house, Holmhurst (now demolished), was located at the top of the hill near Westside Tennis Club.
