About The Project

Crystal Palace Park Regeneration Plan aims to deliver local aspirations for a restored and vibrant metropolitan park, which is an asset to its surrounding communities and visitors from across the UK. The park will be supported by a sustainable business model and cared for through a community led not for profit governance model.

2007 Masterplan

Although Crystal Palace Park benefits from an extensively consulted on and approved Masterplan developed in 2007, the £70million costs associated with the full delivery of this plan have not been available to the park.

Building on the scheme of improvements already underway in the park, the Crystal Palace Park Regeneration Plan now aims to bring to fruition further aspects of the 2007 Masterplan so as to restore the park landscape, reduce on-going maintenance costs, realise capital receipts, and create revenue generating activity which will support the sustainable business model.

The 2007 vision was to rejuvenate Crystal Palace Park as a metropolitan park, heritage asset, cultural, leisure, educational and recreational resource to meet the needs of the local people, sports people whether elite or amateur, and the public at large.

Regeneration Plan

The London Borough of Bromley (LBB) has developed a sustainable Regeneration Plan for Crystal Palace Park in order to support a restored and vibrant metropolitan park, for the local community. The Regeneration Plan is an updated version of the 2007 Masterplan, which is achievable within the resources available.

We have been going through the process of testing and refining ideas for the Regeneration Plan. This has included reviewing the 2007 Masterplan and the park's historic importance, workshops with key stakeholders and public consultation.

This has led to the identification of a Regeneration Plan that is practical, achievable and responds to these findings and the wishes expressed by the community. This summer the plan was approved by the Council.

The full Regeneration Plan can be downloaded from the Information and Documents section, or take a look at the Regeneration Plan Overview, also below, for a summary of the plan.

Work continues on the park's Regeneration Plan, for which community consultation was undertaken throughout 2016, with the Outline Planning Application on course to be submitted in February.

Improvement Scheme

Alongside the Regeneration Plan, a £2.16 million project is underway to improve key elements of the park. This is largely funded by the Mayor of London, with additional funding from Historic England and London Borough of Bromley.

Which improvements have been completed?

  • Conservation of the six Sphinxes and South Terrace steps is complete.
  • Areas of hard standing and the turnstiles have been removed.
  • Iggy the Iguanodon and the water-based dinosaurs have been conserved and works to the lakes are complete. New information boards are now in place.

Which improvements are still to come?
