History

  • Read about the history of Hurlingham Park

    The area now occupied by the park once belonged to the Hurlingham Club, which was originally a pigeon shooting club. In 1874 the club expanded its sporting interest to include polo which soon became the club's speciality. The last polo match at the Hurlingham Club took place in 1937. In 1942, about 9 acres of the polo ground were leased to Fulham Borough Council as allotments.

    In 1951 this land, and the pony stables, were then brought by London County Council for use as a park. Hurlingham Park has undergone several changes since then. The stables on the eastern side became a bowling green, paddling pool and children's playground, while the polo ground became a sports' field with running track, cricket and football pitches and tennis courts.
