Volunteers and Community Groups
For park users who want to become more involved in the way the park is managed, local residents run the Friends of Alexandra Park Group. They have been responsible for conservation work in the park and many activities run in association with the Martial Arts Centre. For more information concerning the Friends of Alexandra Park Group, please contact the Ranger Service on 01372 732000, or alternatively send an email.
The park is home to a variety of wildlife including many different species of birds, foxes, and grey squirrels. Pipistrelle bats are also thought to frequent the park in the summer.
A local resident has also established an exciting collection of wild flowers, some chosen to attract butterflies, in the top area of the park, cleared especially for this purpose by the Friends of Alexandra Park Group. If you spot an animal, bird or plant of interest, please call or email us, describing your find.
