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.

My son like to the ship with others children. He really enjoyed his time in the afternoon with new friends. So, we suggest you to let your children come here.

Our daughter had a blast here whilst we sat and relaxed and moved from area to area when needed. Nice cafe and situated in a great location.

This playground is located relatively close to the main road, it is easy to find. You must have children to enter but once inside, you could be there for hours and hours. It is divided into a number of sections that are suitable for different ages, but if your child likes to try things out, it is safe for all... More

We loved the music areas in the back and played native american in the tipi..The site was clean, the bathrooms were clean and easy accessible for small children. Had... More

We tried to go here but were turned away when they said "you must have small kids with you to go in". It looked pretty from what we could see from the outside gates. Was just a major let down after walking all the way there. If you have kids, I'm sure that it's real cool inside.

This is an amazing playground. No high adrenalin attractions (no high slides or anything like that) but there are tons of attractions in different corners of the place. It's closed off and has opening hours (and a website) and my kids had a ball.

There is something for everyone in Kensington Gardens and the Diana Memorial Playground is perfect for kids of all ages. There is so much to do and even on a dreary Sunday afternoon, there were tons of kids to play with. There is a pirate ship, treehouse and lots of sand to play in. I highly recommend it to get...
