  • Latest Activity: Jul 18, 2019

For those who know nothing of Alexandra Park's history, and for those who know a little but would like to know more... Join Gordon for a whistle-stop tour of the Park and its history - from balloons to bandstands, cows to Cody, and switchback to swimming pool. The Park has it all - huge crowds, spectacles, sports and fires - lots of fires. 

Meet at 7pm outside CUFOS the former ticket office for the station, at the top of the Avenue, N10 2QE. (I know it's not in the Park, but it used to be.)
