The Park takes its name from Princess Alexandra, the wife of King Edward VII, who officially opened the Park in 1870.
The main drive boasts a fine example of a cast iron drinking fountain and popular 40 foot high, (Walter MacFarlane) Saracen Fountain gifted to the City after the 1901 International Exhibition. The highest point of the Park gives views North to Ben Lomond and South to the Tinto Hills.
The main pedestrian entrance into the park is through the ornamental gates leading from Alexandra Parade into an impressive seasonal bedding display and small formal rose garden.
