About your park 

Finsbury Park opened in 1869 and was originally designed and laid out by Alexander McKenzie. 

This short video (external link) showcases some of Finsbury Park's features.

Investment in the park 

From the 1970s, not much money was spent on the park. This left it in a run-down state and attracted anti-social and criminal behaviour.  

A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant, and match funding from other sources, saw £4.9 million spent on it between 2001 and 2006.
