What we love about the deer enclosure…
We love the joy that this place brings to visitors and local folk – especially families, and children in particular. Several members of our team grew up with very fond memories of visits to the deer enclosure, so we realise it makes a real difference and has a positive influence. A visit to the deer enclosure is like a little history lesson – a workout – and a quick embrace with nature all in one go.
Surprise - Many people take a stroll through the vast green open spaces of alexandra park and are totally surprised when they come across the deer enclosure.
History - The deer enclosure takes a step back into local history as it was included in the original plans for Alexandra Park in the nineteenth century. This is why it is still here today, even the fallow deer found in the enclosure today are direct decendants of the original herd.
