“Children going through the dinosaur phase always enjoy a visit to 'the monsters' - five dinosaur sculptures that lurk among the trees around the lake. The remains of a Victorian pre-historic theme park created on the site by Benjamin Waterhouse-Hawkins, the dinosaurs were restored in 2003. OPEN Mon-Fri 7.30am-9.30pm, Sat-Sun 9am-9.30pm”

Trails

Forest
“This is a great wood connecting Sydenham with Dulwich, where you can continue your run if you like. If not, make sure you have waterproof shoes on as the paths can stay muddy after rainy days (Distance: 2.4km uphill and a great downhill on your way back)”

Forest
“This is a beautiful place to go for a walk in the woods. Dulwich Wood, together with the adjacent Sydenham Hill Wood, is the largest extant part of the ancient Great North Wood in the London Borough of Southwark. Easy to get to the entrance to the wood (bottom of Cox's Walk) on buses 176 and 185 from Champion Hill bus stop heading South (15mins by bus). Or it's a 20-25minute walk to the entrance of the wood from the flat, via Dulwich Park.”
