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. Improvement projects funded by the Mayor of London and the Local Authority continue, including a new café and ongoing conservation work to the dinosaurs. The Local Authority continues development of a regeneration plan for the park to realise the vision of the 2011 masterplan, and a new sustainable governance and management model.
