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.  

Public events 

Since it first opened in 1869, public events have taken place at Finsbury Park. In recent years it’s seen many international music acts playing to large audiences.
