Alexandra Park

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. Its 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 thatll 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.
