Remembering Mothers in Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park

Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park on a week day afternoon in July.

Impressions:  Sweep of lavender bushes, imposing Imperial War Museum, planes swooshing above.  Orchard of low fruit trees, empty playground, groups of school kids, tourists, American accents, people sitting at outside at tables and chairs, old lumpy trees and broad leafy canopies.  An excited dog leaping about, enthusiastically greeting every dog in the park.

Question: Viscount Rothermere gifted the land to the “splendid struggling mothers of Southwark” in memory of his mother.  What place or land would you give your mother?
