Crystal Place Park


Originally known as Sydenham Hill, the area underwent a transformation with the relocation of the Crystal Palace structure from Hyde Park after the 1854 Great Exhibition. From its origins as an oak forest, the arrival of the railway during the Victorian era spurred the development of grand villas and houses. Despite the unfortunate demise of the Crystal Palace in 1936, the park evolved into the National Sports Centre.
