Duke's Meadows is a riverside park in Chiswick, London. The land was purchased from the Duke of Devonshire in 1923. A seaside-type promenade and a bandstand were built alongside the riverfront and opened by the Prince Albert, Duke of York (later King George VI) in 1926.[1] In 1998 a group of local people formed the Dukes Meadows Trust to protect the interests of the park.[2]
