The Matilda Fountain is a Grade II listed statue and drinking fountain opposite 15 Gloucester Gate, Regent's Park, London, built in about 1878.[1]

The bronze statue is by Joseph Durham, and depicts a milkmaid holding a pail and looking towards the Park with a hand raised to shield her eyes.[1] The entire monument was presented to the Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association by Matilda, the wife of Richard Kent Jr, a local churchwarden.[1]
