Coker Memorial Gates

Close up of one side of the Coker Memorial Gates.Creating a majestic approach at the northwest end of Nelson Park, these expansive gates are a focal point for a short approach road flanked by towering Canary Island Palms.

The gates comprise eight capped columns of limestone rock, linked by vertical metal railings. Set forward of the other six columns, the two centre columns are each topped with a grand light fitting that speaks eloquently of early 20th century craftsmanship.
