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

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

Recommend going in the winter when it is less popular. Really nice playground with lots of interesting activities, in a very secure environment.

The place is so beautiful & serene. So green & windy. Just like the beautiful lady Diana, the scenery is magical. Took lots of beautiful pictures for my safe keep.

Nice structure built in a nice place inside the park. The water feature looks like a calm circulated valley in beautiful atmosphere.. Gives peaceful emotion that suit the peaceful Princess Diana

I always take the kids to this playground when we are near Notting Hill/Bayswater/areas, or after/before taking them to the museums in South Kensington, and it's not raining. They really enjoy it.
