About Alexandra Park
Alexandra Park is a wonderful park and we pride ourselves on the fact that it has something for everyone. The park lies within a valley and as such is long and linear. It starts flat and progressively goes up hill towards the north of the town.
It is Hastings' largest formal park 44 hectares (109 acres) stretching for 2.5 miles through the heart of the town. It consists of the lower formal gardens and the more wild northern wooded areas.
Alexandra Park received its first Green Flag Award in 2005 and continue to retain this status.
Alexandra Park is famed for its arboretum (tree collection) and has one of the best collections of trees in Britain.
There are some large bodies of water within the park. In Victorian times these were used to supply freshwater to the growing population of Hastings and St Leonards. Now course fishing is permitted just in Harmers Pond and Buckshole Reservoir which is managed by the Hastings Bexhill and District Freshwater Angling Association. The other ponds are wildlife areas.
