In the background of the first photo you can see two of the park's sphinxes. (Sphinges is an acceptable alternative, but then I think, if sphinx, sphinges then why not hinx, hinges?) They are all in decent condition but are currently being refreshed, and are fenced off, so photo opportunities are limited.

The park also has these features:
|"Laptop" auditorium, Crystal Palace Park, 10 August 2016.|
|Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve memorial bell. Crystal Palace Park, 10 August 2016.|
|Crystal Palace station. Crystal Palace Park, 10 August 2016.|
I also noticed not far from the park a "Coffee and Brunch Kitchen" offering "cake, wine and beer" and opposite that, an Artisan Chocolate Café. These are an easy walk from where I used to live and were not there at the time!
Finally, a view of the wall outside the park:
It does actually say C.P.P., but a bit of Photoshop makes it look quite exotic.
