History

This open space, originally named Chancellors Park, was created as part of the housing clearance of Elmdale and Playfair Streets in 1974. Landscaping began in the summer of 1975 and later that year the park renamed Frank Banfield Park in honour of Frank Banfield, Mayor of Fulham, who died on 31 March 1970, aged 64, after a lifetime of public service. The park was extended in 1979-80 across Distillery Lane to Chancellors Road.
