The Concert Bowl is located in the Northern corner of the Park.





Crystal Palace is one of the most unique and historic public parks in the country, with the world famous Grade I listed Dinosaur sculptures, Egyptian sphinxes, Italianate terraces, the iconic Stirling Prize-nominated Concert Bowl, The Maze, a skatepark, and so much more.
