Alexandra Park is a pleasant oasis in southern Manchester. Located in the Whalley Range district off Princess Rd., the 60-acre park was designed in 1868 and was experimental at the time for its oval and curved pathways. A loop around the perimeter paths and main oval is 2.6 km (1.6 miles), with about 1/2 mile of additional paths in the park. The paths are paved and fairly flat.
Alexandra Park is the location of a weekly Parkrun, 9am every Saturday. Information.

There are no changing rooms or showers available nowadays I’m afraid.
There isn’t a Sunday 5k race but there is a weekly 9am Saturday Parkrun. The link is to the wrong Alexandra Park Parkrun, just search for Alexandra Parkrun Moss Side for the correct one.
Thank you for the corrections on this. We’ve made the changes and linked to the correct Parkrun.
