“Diana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

It is a safe place for children to play with their parents .No one is allowed in the playground unless with their child. Diana made this happen.This playground has been made where she would have spent hours walking in her days gone by and is nice to see children being able to play in it freely in these not so safe times as she found out. A great Memorial to her being used everyday by children in the middle of London.The whole park is worth many visits in days to come.

“A good break for kids in London”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

I took my boys, aged 7 and 9, to the park with some friends. They played for hours there and had a great time. There is a fence that secures the perimeter of the park and that is great. As parents, you may want to note that you cannot see the kids the entire time unless you constantly walk around. To avoid this, you could sit at the cafe, it is at the entrance of the park and enjoy a drink.

“Love this wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

A wonderful place for children in central London, There are lots of different areas, from the Pirate Ship with a lot of sand for them to play to the water play area and the musical section. Its near to the Italian Gardens in the Hyde Park that I really recommend to go as well.

“For the child in everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Tucked away in Kensington Gardens, this wonderful playground offers a whole new experience in terms of fantasy and playfulness. The sand and the big pirate ship in itself makes for a whole new playground feel. A place the children will love for sure! And a good brake from the hustle and bustle of London. Great to combine with a stroll throught Kensington Gardens. We met squirrels and lots of birds, it is a real little oasis in the middle of the city.

“QUEUE!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

I was so looking forward to taking my boys here last month but when we finally got there we didn't go in - the queue was about 50 metres long!!!!! Just walked around the park instead!
