Honestly - i was expecting more statues when i heard that they have there. Though it was nice place to walk around. Plenty of space to sit down and relax. Will definitely come back when it is warmer :)

Love the wildness and sheer scale of CPP, you can wander for days and it's always possible to find a quiet corner. Cafe is basic but that doesn't matter.

Not the cleanest park around, but still interesting, with the dinosaurs that are half way through being refurbished. The boating lake is still looking good, after its clean up and marine works. Shame they haven't sorted the old cafe site, that's been closed a long...More

Not really much to see! The garden perhaps need much improvement. The town is also not attractive. Not really other points worth mentioning. There are many other parks to go in England! They should in the Crystal Palace ground provide some photos of the original...More

The park has Victorian ceramic dinosaurs around the lake which are interesting as they show what was known about dinosaurs at the time. There are several terraces with lawns to sit on and play on. Carparking available or get a bus to Crystal Palace.

We were in the area for a family event and I took the opportunity to take the grandchildren to see the dinosaurs. This was a first time for me too. We entered the park from the small entrance by the railway bridge on Thicket Road...More

We visited on a sunny day and there were lots of families out and about having fun. We were very disappointed and surprised that the cafe was closed as it was the school holidays and there would have been plenty of business.

A very pleasant park to visit on a good weather day. The dinosaurs are interesting though rather underwhelming. Plenty of lovely strolling paths and a well looked after children's playground.

Yes but the signs state you must take all BBQs away with you and must be raised off the grass
