Crystal Palace Park Regeneration Plan aims to deliver community-led aspirations for a restored and vibrant metropolitan park, which is an asset to its surrounding communities and visitors from across the UK.
Bromley Council recognises Crystal Palace Park’s potential as a park of local, regional and national significance and is working to bring regeneration to the park to secure a more sustainable future that is enjoyed for generations to come.
The Regeneration Plan will:
- Reinvigorate Crystal Palace Park as a contemporary and historic showcase in tune with Paxton’s vision and create a place of discovery, learning, recreation and fun
- Develop the park’s local and regional identity and re-establish its national and international significance
- Provide community benefits through both facilities within the park and connections to local facilities and the economy
- Deliver a contemporary, financially and environmentally friendly, sustainable plan, securing a long term future in the park
Some of the physical works that will help achieve these outcomes are:
- Creating a new, purpose built event space on the Lower Italian Terrace
- Undertaking outstanding restoration to the dinosaurs and their surrounds
- Constructing three new playgrounds across the park
- Providing a new Information Centre, and a Community Centre
- Creating new access points to the park and conserving historic ones
- Improving pedestrian wayfinding, routes and paths
- Implementing low energy lighting to illuminate key pedestrian routes and structures
- Remove parking from the centre of the park and restore it as parkland
