I can't recommend this place enough. So much to do in the fenced in area - a pirate ship to climb, sand and water play, teepees to hide in as well as slides, swings, climbing frames. Love the fact that you have to accompany a child to get in - no lone adults allowed inside and no lone children allowed... More

Great playground with lots of stuff to do for kids from 1-10. Also has toilets and a small café. Safe gates and friendly staff. No adults without children are allowed in.

After visiting Kensigton Palace, do not miss this playground if you have kids. Many games inside (Music Games, Pirats boat). You can picnic inside in an Indian Tent. Entry not allowed if you are not with kids.

This is a little gem in the heart of London if you're there with small children. There is so much for them to do, including a private ship climbing frame, sand pits, swings and slides. It's well thought out, well finished, and safely designed to keep little ones in. Facilities are ok and there's a little cafe which sells delicious... More

What a treat for little kids. Everything bout this place makes it a must-go on trips to London. The park is across the Queensway station. There is a cafe and paid toilets just before you enter the park. The park has amazing sections - a pirate ship in sand with ladders, ropewalks and a mast to climb up : a... More

Plenty for the kids to do, does get very busy though. Like the fact there is a security gate on the entrance. There is a place to have a coffee but found it difficult to find somewhere to sit.

This is a nice playground for children, probably better known than many others due to its name, but here Princess Diana was very popular and you will find different things dedicated to her. It is to be appreciate.

We are not from London and stumbled across whilst walking through Hyde Park and then Kensington Park. It is located near Kensington Palace. It is an amazing free resource. It is secured within a fence and there is security at the entrance to ensure it is only parents and children that enter. It is a very creative, inspiring play area... More

Went on a family trip to London. Staying in Kensington so decided to visit the playground. 2 yr old daughter had fun playing in the sand area and loved the outdoor music area. Stayed for a few hours running about. Scooters, bikes and dogs are not allowed in the playground, which is gated, this made a good safe environment. Decent... More

I was walking in Kensington gardens to see some other sites and came across the playground. I found it very peaceful and quite. You can spend 5 minutes here or an hour. It is very easy to get to by tube or bus.
