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.

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

Pretty lovely park with lots to explore and discover! Everyone seems to rave about the utterly bananas dinosaur statutes here, and while they aren't maybe what you'd expect it's quite a fun addition to what would be just an average pond.

They also have a great play area for kids, peddle boats on one of the ponds, beautiful flower gardens and of course, the remains of the Victorian palace...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

I absolutely love Crystal Palace Park. It's a huge park accessible from all sides and within a stones throw of Crystal Palace station. There is lots for everyone to do and the park even has a caravan site.

In the far corner is a children's playground with a great sandpit. The cafe is also close by and although expensive for what it is, it has a great selection of food and drinks and offers...more
