Friends of Ally Pally Station




Beautiful Platform 1

The Friends of Ally Pally Station was set up in 2016 to create a community garden and improve the whole environment of the station. We bring the community together by inviting everyone to donate plants and care for the station garden together. Pots and planters have been sponsored by businesses, donated by garden centres and individuals, and made by schools and individuals. There are now over 40 different planters at the station.


We are delighted to have the support of Haringey Council, Great Northern Rail, Sunshine Garden Centre,  and The Palace Gates Residents' Association. Several local businesses are also coming together to transform the station. Further collaborators include Our Cottage Deli, The Starting Gate, Alexandra Cars, Hobart's Estate Agents, Tyrer Roxburgh Solicitors, Palace Gates Dry Cleaners, Crescent Hardware and Alexandra Palace, Pupils from Heartlands High School have built a fantastic planter on Platforms 3/4 and scatterd wildflowers seeds on the banks. and Alexandra Park School horticulture students have installed a bay tree on Platform 1. We are truly bringing every type of community stakeholder together.


We are also a Rail User Group, so we can provide a voice for you in discussions with Great Northern about all aspects of the station.
