Alexandra Park, Manchester, was designed in 1869 by Alexander Hennell and was opened to the public in 1870. Hennell's design was experimental in its use of oval shaped and curved pathways, which contrasted with the more rigid geometry seen previously in Victorian landscapes.
The Park underwent a £5million transformation during 2013/14 with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Manchester City Council, the Lawn Tennis Association, English Cricket Board and Sport England to bring the community facilities back to life.
