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 approved a regeneration plan for the park to realise much of the vision of the 2010 masterplan and is securing the agreements for its implementation alongside a new sustainable governance and management model. The Local Authority and Historic England have funded a hydrology study of park water bodies, which is now complete and will inform improvement works.
