Fehlberg Park is named after the late Mr W J Fehlberg, of Fairfield in Brisbane. Mr Fehlberg was the Chief Health Inspector for the Brisbane City Council at the time and was responsible for the reclamation of a large area of swamp land for sporting use.

Mr Fehlberg devoted a large portion of his life to cricket and was a life member and Vice-President of the Queensland Cricket Association.

South Brisbane District Cricket Club obtained a lease over the park in October 1962.
