Crystal Palace Park

image

As seen from the air yesterday morning. This park is a Victorian pleasure ground, site of the National Sports Centre stadium, and contains a farm as well as the location (between 1854 and 1936) of the Crystal Palace building (after it was moved from its original location in Hyde Park). See the map for a full list of the current pleasurable attractions.

During the current 2012 Olympics, 200 Brazilian athletes are based at the National Sports Centre to prepare and train for their events. In the photograph above, the landmark television transmitter tower is clearly visible on the right of the park.
