CRYSTAL PALACE PARK

Crystal Palace Park
On Sunday we took a 15 minute train ride over to Crystal Palace Park for a day out in the sun. We've been meaning to go since we moved south of the river but for one reason or another we've only just got round to it. If you haven't been yet then definitely make sure you go whilst the weather is still nice.

It is a really really lovely park including a farm, plenty of places to sun bathe, a well stocked cafe (with good ice cream) and obviously, the dinosaurs!

The dinosaur sculptures were the first in the world made way back in 1852, they based them on found fossils and animals that were around at the time - crazy! They look so funny, some of the sculptures are ridiculous but you can see where they got their ideas from.

We had such a lovely day out there, its very peaceful and not overly busy. The boating lake looks like fun too - one for next time we visit!
