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...

To reach this park you have to exit Queensway underground and enter Kensington Gardens. Just at the beginning on the left there is this huge playground which, of course, can be entered only if you have children. The best part is the huge pirate ship but there is much more and your little ones can play on the sand and... More

While I had read a fair amount about the playground, I could have never imagined such a wonderful place for our children to truly play! There's a giant pirate ship surrounded by beach-quality sand and a treehouse that allows every kid to be a "Lost Boy." A small concession stand provided a wonderful and affordable selection of ice creams for... More

My children aged 10 and 12 visited the park. It is beautiful playground which is well kept and good controls (no entry to adults without children and a secure fence). It is better suited to younger children and would recommend for all families holidaying in London. Clean bathroom, water fountain, and a staff member on site.

So beautifully and cleverly designed and built...apt for all ages, even the smallest ones have an under-3 area. Solace in the middle of town!

It is a good playground for young children with a ship and some more attractions. Adults cannot enter without children (which I liked). If you are with kids in the area I think you should take a look. It is FREEE

A wonderful selection of play areas for children up to 12 - and their parents will love it too. Our little one enjoyed the huge wooden pirate ship, the sand and water area, the tunnel to crawl through, the musical play area and the wooden creations to climb over. Something to test their budding sense of adventure. It can get... More

Park is beautiful and loads to do for all ages even the adults can get involved. Go early... we arrived just after 11am and didnt need to queue. Ice creams are good. Bring... More
