This gallery is a two hour walk around Crystal Palace Park on a glorious Sunday afternoon in April 2005. The temperature is in the 60s and after a cold and miserable winter a late spring is just starting to make up lost ground.
And what a revelation. The park has been sadly neglected for many years but over this winter huge amounts of old and tired vegetation has been ripped out. New planting abounds – some of it quite adventurous. It will be many years before we see the full effect.
I hope you find these pictures taken in sequence during our walk a useful record of one day in the Park’s 150 year life. Click on any picture to start.
