The Park is home to 694 different types of plants, animal and fungi, including 212 different types of insects and 26 types of arachnids! Big and small, all of these species play a role in balancing our delicate ecosystem. While many plants and animals found in the park are common to London, 38 species in Alexandra Park are classed as rare or protected by legislation.
The trees and green spaces mean that the Park acts as a vital green lung for North London. It provides a space with better air quality for people to relax or exercise. Studies have shown that a green view can reduce stress in just three minutes, and few places offer a better view than the Alexandra Park. Happier people means happier communities.
