Diana, Princess Of Wales Memorial Playground


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.

The surprisingly decent take-out cafe next door and clean bathrooms inside are nice bonuses.

Also, the friendly front-gate guard watching for parentless...more

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.

In the middle of Hyde Park is this not-so-hidden gem that memorializes Diana, the late Princess of Wales. Perfect on a warm sunny day (as it was when I visited), the fountain and play areas are a delight for the kiddies who need to work off some of that energy, running and playing and splashing.

Because I am sans children in the UK, I was not permitted to actually enter the park and had to...more

Fantastic and well thought out playground that caters for all ages.

The Peter Pan theme is brilliant, and as each play area is visually separated by garden walls it allows you to enjoy each area for itself rather than being overwhelmed by the sheer size of the area. The high garden also provides shade which is missing from so many other playgrounds. Areas include swings, under 3's area with...more
