Set out in 1845 the area was previously known as Battersea Fields and was taken up by a mixture of marshes as well as market gardens growing asparagus, melons (apparently) and great stretches of Lavender. Londoners of all social classes mixed here for recreation of various sorts, enjoying the sites and smells of the lavender and settling disputes with pistol duels.
The Park was laid-out during the first great cycling boom of 1850 and it's wide carriage-drives would have seen cycles of all types being ridden from it's inception.
