The park you never knew was there

Alexandra Road Park, in the Alexandra and Ainsworth estate in South Hampstead, has just reopened after a £1.5 million restoration.

The park is exceptionally beautiful and will appeal to visitors of all ages. Now that summer’s here, why not take your children along?

The park lets children explore a range of different environments, from sheltered play areas to grassy banks. It’s got three playgrounds for children of different ages, a ball game playground, grassy picnic areas, a woodland walk and a stage where events can be held. Although situated within an estate, the park is open to the public and anyone can visit.

The park was designed by architect Neave Brown and landscape architect Janet Jack in the 1970s. The restoration project is a joint initiative between the Alexandra and Ainsworth Tenants and Residents Association, the Friends of Alexandra Road Park and the Council. It was supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund.
