This memorial to Diana, Princess of Wales was opened by Her Majesty The Queen in 2004. The fountain is made from 545 pieces of Cornish granite - each shaped by computer-controlled machinery and pieced together using tradtional skills. The design aims to reflect Diana's life; water flows from the highest point in two directions as it cascades.

I respectfully disagree with some of the recent posts. Yes, if you're not interested in exploring large city parks, then this fountain, and probably most fountains, are probably a waste of time
On the other hand, I'm a New Yorker who grew up enjoying Central Park, and as a tourist I LOVE seeing how other big cities use their green space.

Not much to see here. Yeah the fountain is pretty and has a cool design. Unless you really enjoy leisurely walks in a pretty park, it's not worth walking miles in the Kensington Garden, searching for this memorial! It's by the W.

Nothing too exciting. Was expecting a large tall fountain but this one is a low waterfall(not higher than your knees) a lot of kids and some adults were barefoot in it. (Not sure if it's meant for that or not). I appreciated the scenery by the lake beside it more.more
Princess Diana's memorial fountain was pretty and very serene. Nothing fancy, just modest. I guess that's perfect for Princess Diana -- keeping it simple yet there's an elegance.
The fountain is located in the Hyde Park, just follow the signs and you'll find it. It's actually really close to the Serpentine
I don't think it's worth to purposely make your way out here to look at the memorial....more
