This is a fitting memorial to Princess Diana and offers a nice area for the children to play in Kensington Gardens.

My husband and I arrived slightly earlier than our friend who has two small children, and can testify that they take security seriously as they chucked us out for having no children, seconds after we sat down at a picnic table to wait for my friend at the entrance! I imagine this is reassuring for parents. The park has a... More

Every Summer since my children were young, I have brought my kids here at least once over the school holidays. They absolutely love it. Fantastic clean & safe playground for children. You can spend a wonderful day here & the children are never bored with so much to do. Picnic areas, massive sandpit with pirate ship, sound & sensory areas.... More

A great idea having a memorial playground instead of memorial bronze for Princess Diana. The place is free of charge and offers a lot of variety of outdoor play for children.

My 2.5 year old loved this playground! There are lots of nooks and crannies and the playground is well zoned. My son loved: the swings, the wooden hut zone with wooden tractor, the sandpit and the giant pirate ship! I loved the fact there were toilets and a place to get a cup of tea. A lady manned the playground... More

We decided try this park because it was recommended in Time Out as one of the best things to do for free with kids. We wish we had discovered it earlier in our trip. From outside the playground, it's hard to tell what it is. There is a fence around the attraction, with a line up to get in once... More

Easy to locate in Kensington Gardens and close to main bus routes with the tube only a short walk away. The park itself features an area where the 'grown-ups' can sit and relax whilst theire young charges run around like loons exploring everything that the garden/play area has to offer. There is also a refreshment booth and a public convenience.... More

What a hidden gem , my boys 9, 12 years loved the playground especially the pirate ship. The whole park was well thought out. I loved the fact you couldn't get in without children and was patrolled by "wardens" watching out for the kids and helping mums with a lost child. Lots of different sections wigwams , music garden ,... More

We could have spent all day here, our children aged 7 and 9 had a wonderful couple of hours, never kept still. Best playground we have been to from the soft sand all around the pirate ship, the swinging dinghys, sound garden, this is clearly a fabulous garden designed for children of all ages. We were suitably impressed by the... More
