Open House 2015 – a huge success!

IMG_1226 IMG_1222 IMG_1209This year for the first time ever Alexandra Road Park was part of ‘Open House’ on 19th September, and it was a huge success!

We had a fantastic day with 250 visitors in total, who were taken on guided tours around the park by Neil Davidson, the lead landscape architect for the restoration works from J+L Gibbons – assisted by our brilliant Open House volunteers. As you can see from the photos, there were crowds of eager visitors!

The Tenants and Residents Hall was also open, where Friends of Alexandra Road Park provided home-made cakes and cups of tea, information about the park was displayed as well as  films about the estate and a photographic exhibition.

It was wonderful to have been able to introduce so many people to the park, and to hear such great feedback about it. We hope that lots of the visitors will come back and enjoy spending more time in the park and its playgrounds!
