Ravenscourt Park is a 32-acre public park and garden located in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham as well as a political division of the borough approximately corresponding to the park and grounds of the Ravenscourt Park estate. At the four yearly local elections it returns three Councillors in a first (three) past the post system. At the 2006 local election Lucy Ivimy, Harry Phibbs, and Eugenie White all candidates of the Conservative Party (UK) were returned.
The origins of Ravenscourt Park lie in the medieval manor and estate of Palingswick (or Paddenswick) Manor, located on the site and first recorded in the 12th century. The historic name still exists today in the name of Paddenswick Road, which runs along the northeast boundary of the park. The park is part of the Conservation Area of Ravenscourt and Starch Green, and its north-eastern corner has been designated an Archaeological Priority Area. Today there is still much evidence of historic planting throughout the park, including plane trees and cedars. The park also now has a ‘friends of ravenscourt park’ organisation, whose aim is to maintain and improve a well used and loved park in west London
