A large open space of land, owned by the army, between Aldershot and Farnborough.
Queens' Parade is a grassed open area covering about 89 acres that sits between the A325 Farnborough Road and Queen's Avenue and stretches from the Basingstoke Canal at Aldershot to North Camp.
The army owns the flat open area and uses it predominantly as sports playing fields, but it is also open to the public, who use it as informal recreation area. This is subject to the rules affecting access onto military land. For more information, please visit the Aldershot Garrison Sports Centre website. For booking outdoor facilities please contact Aldershot Garrison.
The site is also used for special events, such as the Aldershot Garrison Show.
The land is called Queen's Parade because it was here that Queen Victoria carried out her annual review and inspection of the garrison. In the middle to late 19th century, the area was also used for horse racing and at one time, a race track was laid out around the Queen's Parade.
