Alexandra Park's diverse history is a true reflection of the Victorian enterprising spirit.

Since the original 220 acres of landscaped parkland and pleasure grounds were opened in 1863, the park has enchanted visitors with panoramic views of London, a miniature Japanese village, a deer park, hot air balloon rides, a frying pan shaped horse racing course, a band stand, a boating lake, a diving pavilion, a croquet court, Red Bulls Empire of Dirt BMX event, a permanent Park circus and field archery.
