History

The development of the Ravensbourne Park Estate began in the 1820s north of Catford Bridge, but was only gradually built. A number of the early houses survive at the beginning of Ravensbourne Park and opposite Ravensbourne Park Gardens, which was originally a private green for the estate. A house called Ravensbournepark House is shown on the 1870s Ordnance Survey map to the south of the site of the present gardens. After World War 1 the area became fully developed and the public gardens date from around the 1960s/70s.
