Crystal Palace Park

Crystal Palace Park is a mid-19th-century public park modified in the 20th century. The park was the site of 'Crystal Palace' which was moved from Hyde Park after hosting the Great Exhibition of 1851. Some of the trees from the original planting survive and the park has a number of lakes, initially part of the elaborate waterworks scheme. The London Development Agency (LDA) have started a programme of regeneration in the park. The park is also the home of The National Sports Centre (NSC).
