About Park Group
The 7 August 2019 was the 150th anniversary of the opening of Finsbury Park. The park was originally designed and laid out by Alexander McKenzie and opened in 1869.

Finsbury Park has since undergone many changes. From the 1970s, the lack of capital investment resulted in a run-down site, much of which attracted anti-social and criminal behaviour. A Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Grant, along with match funding from a variety of other sources, has seen £4.9million spent on it between 2001 and 2006. The restored Park is now a major attraction for local and wider-based communities, for many types of both formal and casual recreation.

Public events have taken place at Finsbury Park since it first opening in 1869. In recent years the park has been the prime location for many international music acts, playing to large audiences within the open arena of the park. The summer events programme sees over 300,000 people visiting the park each year and enjoying the music and attractions. See the Large and major events information for residents page.
