Butterfield Green is a small public park that takes its name from William Butterfield, the architect of St Matthias Church on Newington Green. An old footpath runs between Butterfield Green and blocks of flats. A community orchard was planted on the site by local people in 2007.
The area was first developed in the 19th century but the Green is surrounded by post-war council housing of the late 1940s/50s and the park was created when houses that occupied the sites of the various parts that make up the Green were demolished.
