About
A free central London playground and park, not far from the British Museum, with play equipment for all under 16s including a huge sand pit for toddlers. There are even some farm animals and no adult can enter without a child so it's a safe space too.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
How to get there
  • Russell Square • 4 min walk
  • Holborn • 9 min walk

Good enough

I agree the place is a little run down; but it feels more faded grandeur. The play equipment was fine and we managed to kill an hour here playing. There is a little cafe and toilets too

SHAME THIS PLACE HAS BECOME SO RUN DOWN.
Sep 2019 • Family
I use to visit this place often around 10 years ago and it use to be a real hidden treasure for kids and parents in London. I visited today and was so disappointed and sad to see how run down this place has become. The animals are all gone, the paddling pools not in use and things broken and out of order. I heard funding is an issue and it sure shows. Come on Camden council get this place back on its feet again.

Visit with my Grandchildren
Aug 2019
I visited last week,and was very disappointed as were my Grandchildren. Certainly did not match the description on their website. A real pity it's so rundown. Paddling pool was not in use,and looks like it has been I need for sometime. Wildlife garden was shut.So called farm had 2 goats few rabbits and chickens closed off.It would be nice if this large space was restored for benefit of the community and also I feel as great Ormond St Hospital is so nearby this could benefit families .

Website a little misleading
Aug 2019 • Family
We felt the website didn’t quite reflect the Park. We were led to believe that there would be a lot more there. However, a couple of the areas were not in use and some of the play equipment is a little tired. However, we met family there and the children did not care, they had a lovely day playing and we had a picnic together. Although we didn’t eat at the cafe, we did enjoy hot chocolates and coffee throughout the day which were all very nice and the cafe was very clean. Overall a great stop gap and good for younger children.

Great place to stop with your family
Aug 2019
I visited here with my 2 year old. She loved it.

It is close to Russel Square and the British Museum (10 min walk). It is the sort of place you can stop for 30 mins or spend half the day.

The small cafe sells simple lunches. The cheese and tomato melts we had were simple, but quite nice.

We will definitely be back with our family.

But disappointed
Aug 2019 • Family
I’d seen this place advertised on a website looked it up on there website and looked very nice but we were a bit disappointed when we got there the paddling pool is not filled up which is a shame
A nice big slide was sectioned off for work also shame this wasn’t stated on the website
Wildlife garden didn’t look open and animals we nearly didn’t notice and not as nice as they look on the website
Nice sand pits for younger kids
I would say great for under 6 , older kids not so much to do

Warning entry with children only
Jul 2019 • Couples
I am now of an age where I enjoy a nice park with benches where you can rest from sightseeing and enjoy the flower beds trees and perhaps have a picnic lunch.
Coram's Fields was on my radar as I was going to be in the area, so I was very disappointed that you could only access this park if accompanied with a child.
It did look nice as we peered through the railings.

Good place to chill after the British museum. Cafe with good ice cream and sandwiches. Good quality and not too pricey.
