Crystal Palace Park SE19 - Bromley

Mid-C19 pleasure grounds designed by Sir Joseph Paxton as a setting for the Crystal Palace, burnt down in 1936. The park is in variable condition with related listed structures also at risk. The Local Authority has submitted an application for planning permission to underpin the developing regeneration plan for the park to realise much of the vision of the 2010 masterplan. A new sustainable governance and management model has been developed alongside this approach. The Local Authority and Historic England are funding a hydrology study of park water bodies to inform improvement works.
