  • A great playground! We travel quite frequently with our 8 year old son. We are always on the lookout for good playgrounds. This one had some interesting things to do. Some music stops, a bug pirate sh...  more »
  • Nice place with a pirate ship and a mast to which the children can climb to the top. Attention closing at 4:45 p.m. in the winter. Possibility to buy to eat and welcome hot drinks for the parents.

  • Next to Kensington Palace, we approached the playground gates and someone buzzed us in. The entire playground is gated so we felt safe to let the kids loose and explore. They started at the swings, pi...  more »

  • Its a great park but with different sections surrounded with trees and shrubs its easy to lose your child which we did even though 2 of us was watching. He went down a tunnel and before we could reach other end he was gone. 10 frantic minutes later we found him thank goodness. Nice to know people on gate watching for any child alone but scary to think anyone could walk out with your child. Also saw another women frantically looking for their child.
  • Really nice play park, plenty to keep kids up to about 8 entertained for a good while. Gets very busy during good weather so can be difficult to keep eyes on more than one small child at a time. Park only allows access to adults with kids which is good. Cafe in the park with all the normal drinks and snacks at above average prices. Would recommend.
  • Never seen such a well designed play space - lots of separate areas to explore all enclosed so you don't need to worry about them vanishing! The use of plants and trees to separate the various areas is magical. Only downside is its understandably very popular.
  • Take water bottles and packed lunch a bucket and spade and you can spend the whole day there it really is a beautiful park. Top tip spare clothes a lot of potty training going on and kids peeing on the ship unfortunately. Staff do keep an eye on this after many parents complained so it's got better now there is toilets around the corner and a cafe. Great playground so much to explore love the music bit and it's gated with a guard
  • A very good park with plenty for kids of all ages to do. The are lots of climbing frames, a pirate ship, and different playgrounds. They only let in a certain number of people at a time, so it doesn't get too crowded.
