Take the Southern Railway or Overground to Crystal Palace to visit this neighborhood gem. Tip: There are farm animals, a boating lake and dinosaur replicas scattered around the park for families and walking trails for nature lovers.

The dino park is in a small area but interesting to see how the dinosaures were perceved then and now, there is boat hire to get a different view. Several good spots to take children and have a picnic in the park.
