Queens Park is located in North London. The region has numerous features including the park itself. The park is large in size and is well conserved for the public. It has a caf'e, sport amenities and a playground. This region is well-known because of the Queen's Park Rangers football club. The region also has the historic housing estate called Queen's Park Estate.

The Queen's park estate land was urbanised by a group of people that comprised of labourers, General Dwelling Company and artisans. The Park is situated on eighty acres of farmland, which is located in Harrow road that is also referred to as 'Chelsea removed'. Individuals living in this area founded Artisans Co in 1867, with a sole purpose of building decent homes for the people working in the industries.

The construction of the houses on the Queen's Park Estate started in 1874. In 1882 1,571 home had been constructed with an additional of 499 being built. At first when the construction work was commencing there were issues, but despite these problems Queen's Park was an achievement and a significant forerunner of the rising 'Garden City' organisation and later became similarly significant in growth of early urban housing.

There are also similar parks in Wandsworth (Shaftesbury Estate) Haringey (Noel Park) and Lambeth (Leigham Court). The estates were changed following World War II, after the Second World War estates like Kilburn Lane, Droop Street, Huxley Street and Fifth Avenue were damaged. In 1940 Peach Street was totally destroyed by a land mine. Following government request of iron railings, the Street scene was also changed.

The first phase in the post world war re-expansion of the estate was the building of Queen's Park Court. The construction was taking place on the Peach Street Bomb site in the year 1951. In the year 1970, the destruction and re-expansion of tangential porches on Droop Street and Third Avenues followed. These avenues would be known as Avenue Gardens and Mozart Estates. The space that was available to build the park was not enough and therefore, Farrent Street was destroyed to create more room for recreation space.

QPR also known as Queen Park ranges football, is a professional football club which is based in white City, London. For the first time in fifty years the club is now playing in the English premier league. The club was promoted to the premier league in the 2011-2012 Season. The football club won the league in the year 1967, and was runners-up in First division league in 1975-1976 Season and also reached FA cup final in the year 1982.

After coming together of St. Judes Institute and Christchurch Rangers in 1886, QPR war formed. The tradition colours of the club are white and blue. The club played its matches at different ground until they settled in their current home ground that is known as Loftus Road.
