This extremely large park in south London hosts several different exhibitions, outdoor concerts and an increasingly popular fireworks display in November, in honor of Guy Fawkes' Day. The park boasts a dinosaur area where the tyrannosaurus lurks among the reeds and the lake. There's a wonderful lily pond with a stage on which concerts are performed, and even a maze. The site of the old crystal palace is also visible. A large sports hall is located within the grounds of the park. Crystal Palace Park was, and still is, a popular place for campers, not only because it is a lovely place to stay but also because many buses stop outside the park and will take you into Central London or further south so that you can explore.
