Mid way through a visit to the nearby Great Ormond Street Hospital, we went with our Grandson and mum to this lovely park. Lots of different, small play facitlities for young children, which he enjoyed. There is also a small "zoo" with goats, chickens and rabbits. There's a large sandpit with a water feature. Okay, but it looked rather mucky,... More

This free children's playground has swings, climbing structures, slides, open space, fields, a zip line and other miscellaneous things. Many area green spaces have the open space, but few have the diverse playground structures. There is added safety since adults can only enter with a child. The gate has an adult monitor that ensures this. It is a relatively short... More

After 3 hours at the Great Ormond Street Hospital (which is a positive and surprisingly enjoyable experience in itself) we headed on foot towards the Green Park Underground and almost didn't stumble across nor venture into Coram's Fields. Since the 1700's this site has provided for children, and today adults are only permitted to enter when accompanied by a child.... More

We had a nearby hospital appointment and before the appointment was due we took our kids (5 and 3) to this park and they had a ball of a time. It's fantastic that there was so much open space in the middle of central London which was free, and importantly, safe.

You cant tell what this place looks like until you get here but I have to say, it is not easy finding children's playgrounds well equipped in London, whereas large formal and proper parks for walking and strolling is easier. So having said this, Coram's is 10 minute walk from St Pancras and the British Museum. There isnt much around... More

Wonderful park with lots of play areas, different types of equipment and even some animals to pet. If you are an adult, don't try to get in without a child! Busy, but all of the children we saw were great at taking turns. Lots of shade and plenty of seats. Café available altho we didn't try it.

A great place to burn off steam after a visit to the 'Pompeii' exhibition at the British Museum (which is excellent). The kids (aged 5-8) really loved the zipline and the fact they made new friends. They also liked the large wooden play structure with quite a high turret. Sweet little cafe on site. This is not a destination I... More

This is a place I take my grandson to on a regular basis because we can spend hours there, no matter what the weather is doing. We have so much fun enjoying all the facilities on offer in a little area of London. It has such a feeling of safety as the requirement is no child, no entry, such an... More

Took my daughters aged 5 and 7 here for on a sunny May bank holiday weekend. We had a really lovely day. They enjoyed the huge sand pit and playing in the big paddling pool. They enjoyed the playground equipment too. We had lunch in the cafe which had lots of choice and was reasonably priced. Love that the park... More

If you want sandpits, slides, water features and lots of space to run around in with kids up to about 10, this is the place for you. It's all free (but do give a donation to support the upkeep). Avoid if you are easily irritated by potentially pretentious children or their yummy mummies, but otherwise this is a perfect parent... More
