A bandstand commemorates the coronation of Edward VII.

Edward was the eldest son of Queen Victoria and ascended the throne on January 22, 1901 upon Victoria's death. The coronation was originally scheduled for June 26, 1902, but Edward had to undergo an emergency appendectomy operation, so the coronation was postponed until August 9, 1902.
