Crystal Palace Park Free


Crystal Palace Park is a large park in South London.

At the top of the park is the site where the large glass Crystal Palace exhibition building stood between 1854 and 1935. The park is also home to some full-size dinosaurs – models built by the Victorians which lurk between the trees. You can find out more about the exhibition and dinosaurs at the Crystal Palace museum in the park.

Crystal Palace park is also home to the national sports centre, a children's farm, a playground, a maze, an outdoor concert stage and plenty of green space to run about in.

The park has a good range of habitats, including a lake which is valuable for water birds.

Crystal Palace Park is the ultimate park, shame the on site cafe does not measure up. Avoid it at all cost. I paid 8 pounds for three standard ice creams. I have visited this park many times and over the past months the prices have crept up and up. The service is poor, the food average. I suspect the proprietors are hoping to fund the refurbishment of the cafe with the outlandish prices....more

What a park!

It's huge, it's well maintained, it has dinosaurs, it has sphinxes, it has a hedge maze, it has a farm and petting zoo, it has a sports centre and a café and a museum, it has everything you could want from a park!

A day out at this gorgeous park is bound to be fun and exciting. I'd suggest starting with the Dinosaur lake which features huge stone dinos, complete with information...more

I came here for the dinosaurs. The dinosaurs delivered. No other place in London has this many huge stone dinosaurs up for grabs, and it took about an hour to go through all the dinosaurs. Along the dinosaur path, there's a farm as well. Being in the city most of the time doesn't give you a lot of opportunity to interact with animals, so that was an absolute delight checking out the llamas,...more

Crystal Palace Park is awesome. I don't know anywhere else in London that you'll find giant stone dinosaurs, Sphinx, an outdoor concert space, a farm and a maze all in one place!

It's a fine place to go for a run to get in shape, and an even better place to spend summer afternoons eating ice cream.more

Large, huge, magnanimous.

Vast green space.

You might just get lost in the vastness.

There is a leisure center right in the middle of the park. Maybe that is why it is called a 'center'.

The public toilets are not the best, but they serve the purpose. You know what I mean.

The cafe served a variety of stuff. Nice place to rest after a long walk or run in the park.more
