I recommend to go there if you are close to Hyde Park with Delmas. We were there with kids (4 and 5 years) and were very excited. The field is fenced, the child will not go away alone. A lot of spots for playing.

I wanted to be a child again, only to enjoy the playground. With a huge pirate ship and sculptures, you can see the children playing using their imagination. I really think they forgot their tablets and computers while they were pretending being pirates. It is a wonderful memorial for a wonderful woman!

We took our 2 1/2 year old here last week and he did not want to go home! I was skeptical at first about how much he could actually do when I saw the pirate ship, but it was great! (Tip: if you are following/helping a toddler navigate the pirate ship, the easier way to get on is around the... More

I used to play in this playground when I was a kid to come back and see this in its place is amazing and a fitting tribute to a great lady

Brilliant day out, you just need dry, and sunny if possible, weather for a lovely time here. The park is beautifully made and very well thought out. Check times on website before you set off https://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/kensington-gardens/things-to-see-and-do/sports-and-leisure/diana-memorial-playground. It's a two min walk from nearby tube station Queensway. We usually take a picnic, but there is a cafe selling refreshments, ice creams... More

Lovely playground - our children had a great time. No entry unless you have a child which made it a really safe place - could find a spot to relax and let them get on with exploring. Did get v busy - but we went on a lovely sunny day so was expected. Kiosk for coffee and ice cream and... More

The park is beautiful. Love the Elfin Oak. Too bad that it has to be enclosed! We had/have no young children so we could not go into the playground, but could sit and watch some of the children play and enjoy the area!

We took our two year old and had a fantastic time. She loved it so much she didn't want to leave! So much to explore and even a lovely spot in the tipis to have a packed lunch/picnic. I'll expect it gets really busy in the summer but even with a both of drizzle going on we had a wonderful... More

Within the oasis that is Hyde Park is another mini-oasis, for the kids! The playground is enclosed and serviced - the gate keeper will not let you in unless you are there with your (own) kids. As a father I was even asked "Where is the mother?". So, the kids have the playground on their terms. The playground is wonderfully... More
