This is a fabulous playground in Kensington Gardens. Nearest tube Queensway, just a few yards from the entrance. Entrance is free and in the centre is a huge wooden pirate ship, very exciting for little visitors! There are attendants on duty and no adult unaccompanied by a child, is allowed in. There is a little stream for modest water play,... More

This play area is for adults with children only! A careful eye must be kept on toddlers at all times, a marvelous place but does have hazards!

We visited today with our 6 and 4 years olds. It was pretty busy but they still had a great time. Lots of different areas to explore. Also appreciated the security, although it's a shame that it's needed.

This is a very safe place for children to enjoy themselves in. Other reviewers have described it as well as I could. I think that Diana, Princess of Wales would be very approving of this place, and also of the Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park nearby. I show people around London on occasions and some like to do the 'Diana,... More

The playground is located in the North West corner of Kensington Gardens. This playground is a memorial to Diana. It is designed to stimuate children's imagination, sense of adventure, and to encourage them to challenge their physical and mental prowess. There is a wooden pirate ship sering as a climbing area for children, surrounded by sand. There are also slides,... More

Diana was a much loved princess and the love that she had for children and nature is very much represented in this memorial. I had never seen it before and we stumbled across it by chance. Its lovely, and would be lovely to sit near on a beautiful day just listening to the water trickle by.

The children loved it, and kept asking to go back! The galeon is the main attraction, as they can climb, go under it, play in the sand, etc. They probably spent an hour on it. This should be a central attraction for any family trip to London. It gives the kids something to do and gets the ready for a... More

The most important about getting here is to remember that Kensington Gardens is gigantic. It takes half an hour to walk from one end to the other so if you are coming from Kensington area with young children, be prepared to be exhausted by the time you arrive! Approach from the Bayswater area otherwise you will end up walking a... More

We loved our visit to this park. The play areas were a lot of fun and can accommodate children up to 8 or so years old. Very clean. Nice snack stand. Carousel located right outside was beautiful and affordable! Great stop for kids!
