The park is split in two by Victoria Street (A571). One side of the road consists of two bowling greens and a pavilion. The bulk of the park is on the opposite side of the road and consists of a playing field including an informal sports pitches, a hard standing events area, a play area for 0-12 year olds, two tennis courts and an extreme sports facility.
Alexandra Park is well used as a local community informal recreation area for dog walking or just having a rest on one of the park benches. The park hosts several events throughout the year.
The Friends of Alexandra Park are an important partner in the future of the park. Their role is to make sure that the park provides for the needs of the local community. If you would like to get involved, we’d love to hear from you – everyone is welcome. The Friends group meet on the first Wednesday of each month in the Bowling Pavilion – dates will be posted in the park noticeboards.
The Friends are looking for volunteers to help establish wildflower meadows, developing and looking after a community garden, event planning and funding applications to restore the monument. The Friends also need help to carry out regular gardening and tidy up sessions.
Please email the Friends of Alexandra Park - John or Lynsey for further details.
