Alexandra Park

Aexandra Park
As the summer comes closer and closer so does the beginning of our event season and we have some exciting new addition to this years event plan.
One of the events we did last year were the play days in Alexandra Park and we would like to highlight the many wonders the park has to offer. See you there!

Alexandra Park is well known for its diverse and abundant wildlife, especially at the Northern end, known as ‘Old Roar Gill’ which is now a Local Nature Reserve and well worth visiting with binoculars! However Kingfishers and Grey Wagtails can be seen any time of the year all over the park and not just in the reserve, especially at the Bucks-hole Reservoir and Harmers Pond areas.

It’s a great spot for twitchers of all orders because of the pleasing proximity to the coast, which means many rare migrant birds also regularly visit the park, including Night Heron and Little Bittern, plus the delightfully monikered Honey Buzzard and Ferruginous Duck!

The lower park highlights include an active boating lake, traditional bowls green, family friendly cafe, adventure playground, bandstand, war memorial and helpful public information point. The upper park includes tennis courts, multi play area, formal flower and rose gardens, reservoirs for fishing (permit required) natural woodland and a cute miniature railway that’ll be the gem of the trip for most kids.
Various special and seasonal events take place in Alexandra Park, largely during the summer months, including Hastings Beer Festival, various Band Concerts, Play in the Park and interpretive walks and activities, amongst other things.
