"Join us to celebrate 150 years of the extraordinary."
"150 years ago, Alexandra Park was opened by the renowned landscape architect Alexander McKenzie, as a pioneering Victorian leisure park and centre for education and entertainment. To mark this historic occasion, Ally Pally will celebrate 150 years of the extraordinary, bringing the park to life with entertainment and activities in true McKenzian style!
"This community and family-focused event will be free to attend, and will celebrate all the amazing things that have taken place in this beautiful 196 acres of landscaped parkland over the past 150 years.
"The celebration will feature a bandstand featuring local community groups and entertainers, a south terrace street-party, a farmers’ market, an activity zone including pitch-and-putt workshops, cricket, community games and archery, a funfair with Victorian street performers and fairground rides, park walks, tree-climbing, face-painting, pedalo races and a soapbox showcase, just to name a few."
