Ally Pally park celebrates its big birthday

Alexandra Park celebrates its 150th anniversary this year, and Sunday sees the big birthday bash, featuring a street party, music, a farmers market, a tethered balloon, Victorian street performers and more. The event is entirely free, with the main festival running from 11-4, and music from local groups continuing into the evening.

The park was  originally designed by Victorian landscape architect Alexander McKenzie (1830-1893), who, as the superintendent of works for land owned by the London Metropolitan Board of works, held responsiblity for Finsbury Park, Blackheath and Southwark Parks, and whose work also included designs for Victoria Embankment gardens.
