Crystal Palace is a good place to visit on a sunny day. There is plenty of wide open space for picnicking and running about, lovely views to the city and south, historical interest in that it was the site of the Crystal Palace (sadly burnt down so not there any more!) and has sculptures of dinosaurs/extinct animals and mammals that...

A lovely park in South of London, a huge open space to be free to walk, cycle, relax. A few more benches would be nice. A great Dinosaur area and lark for the children. A water lily pond to relax near. Also can see the remains of the Italian walls/gardens and the Sphinx which are being restored.

I've been visiting Crystal Palace Park for over 10 years and in that time have seen it improving as a great place to take the family. I used to think it all looked a little tired but it seems to be getting better all the time. There is a city farm in the grounds which I believe is now run... More

We timed our visit for the first Sunday of the month when the Crystal Palace museum hosts a walking tour of the old building site. I'm pretty sure the tour guide was a volunteer. He was very knowledgeable but you needed to ask questions to get him going. There isn't much of the palace left. Mostly just the steps but... More

The park is also home to some full-size dinosaurs models and you can find out more about the exhibition and dinosaurs at the Crystal Palace museum in the park. Crystal Palace park is also... More

This has always been a park I return to year after year. The pond is lovely well kept and a nice walk around. The farm is small but still impressed younger children. We took a walk upto the top where the Sphinx are being fixed up .. There is still 3 there. There's a great maze even better now it's... More

It is one of the largest parks in South London and one of the most significant in Britain. The park now home to the National Sports Centre, a number of recreational activities and a variety of heritage features. There is much to enjoy on your visit.  I had a lovely nice walk in the park without really knowing where to... More
