  • I wasn’t quite sure whether it was supposed to be a city farm or a mini zoo but either way the animals and birds had very little space and nothing of their natural habitat. Several sheep in a small fe...  more »

  • Crystal Palace Dinosaurs Park it’s very nice park. Statues of dinosaurs created by Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins in the years around 1854. Great place for a walk and feed water birds.  more »

  • The park is beautiful and has so much potential There's a nice little kids farm, famous dinosaurs and a playground as well as lots of walks around the lakes, up to the maze. There's also a huge sports centre with great pool and lots of other events. Easy to find free parking and the cafe in Crystal palace station is decent (though doesn't do hot food after 2pm I think). Unfortunately the park needs some upkeep - toilets are awful, main cafe is being rebuilt but wasn't great anyway and playground is poor for a park of this size (and equipment is broken for long periods). I think there's a big regeneration program coming next year with new cafe and skate park and hopefully other issues will be addressed!
  • This has history, a farm, playground, cafe and plenty of room to run around. If the toilets were slightly better it would be 5 out of five. I recommend looking at the dinosaurs they are amazing
  • Nice open space to wander around on a sunny day. Not recommended for anyone with a weak bladder as the toilet facilities are few and far between. There is also a dearth of seating for the less sprightly. The vaunted dinosaur area is old and uninspiring and there is very little to interest 5 to 10 year olds. But if it's a picnic with a young family or a tarmacadam path to jog on this is the place to be.
  • I like the park and go here frequently. I used to also walk my dogs here but I have found more and more recently that people have their dogs off the leash. And whilst I have a dog I am not fond of other pets rushing across to my own. Especially when an owner is not close. As my own dog has now been attacked three times in the park by unleashed dogs. They have refurbished the dinosaurs and the farm attached is also excellent for small children. The park I can not fault as it is beautiful. The only thing letting it down is those who think it's okay for their dogs to run around unchecked.
  • We were here for the motorsport and what a fantastic experience that was! Adventuring around the park afterwards and discovered the amazing dinosaur sculptures! What an awesome and unusual piece of history and well done to the volunteers and friends of the park who are restoring these creatures to their full glory! Victorian parks in England are so full of surprises and amazing individual stories! How lucky we are to have such a range of freely accessible green spaces up and down the country! Crystal palace park is definitely one of our finest! x x x
