Alexandra Road Park is a unique modernist sculpted linear park, integral to the surrounding housing. Architect Neave Brown and landscape architect Janet Jack designed the park in the 1970s and it was restored with a Heritage Lottery Fund grant in 2015. The design features a series of outdoor rooms and new play parks designed by Erect Architects, with landscaping by J+L Gibbons. The planting is based on the original planting plans, which had an emphasis on endurance as the site is a playground to the many children living in the surrounding housing and their friends, as well as to the general public. Janet Jack planted the many trees, not only for their beauty, but also to form shelter belts for the otherwise windy site. The park contains an unusual circular lawn known locally as ‘the bowl’ – it was once bowl-shaped but has since been filled in – and a ‘stage’ which is used for performances, picnics and other events.
