Avast me hearties! Your little landlubbers can be pirates for the day on Captain Hook's huge wooden pirate ship at the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground.
Everyone loves this imaginative play area. Nestled between the trees in Kensington Gardens, it's inspired by J M Barrie's novel, Peter Pan.
Designed to be accessible and inspiring, kids love playing in the teepees, on the beach, and running between the sculptures.

This very cool playground in Kensington Gardens is probably best for kids in the 4-6 age range. My guys (ages 6-10) had a good time jumping off the pirate ship and checking out the other themed areas, but had enough after about 45 minutes.

There's a security guard checking too...too bad no asian people went in..i coulda tagged along. What, do they think i'm going to kidnap a child? sigh*more
I think Diana would have been pleased to have this area named after her. Located in the middle of Hyde Park, this is a haven for parents to let their kids blow off some steam.
There's an enormous sandpit with nautically themed structures to climb, swing, slide and rock from. Any child with a half fertile imagination would have a field day creating adventures in this playground.

As an American dad who has traveled a fair amount with a (now) six-year-old son, I've seen a lot of playgrounds.
