Summer Activities For Kids: Princess Diana Memorial Playground

Whatever the weather, venture out with your little one today and enjoy the great British outdoors (and a huge wooden Pirate ship) at the Diana, Princess of Wales' Memorial Playground.

If you’re trying to avoid sticking yet another episode of Peppa Pig on, take advantage of Kensington’s very own Never Land (a favourite of bonny Prince George) – a free and fun day out for all of the family.

If your toddler loves Peter Pan, they’ll love this outdoor adventure.  This children's wonderland is a fitting tribute for Princess Diana who loved the innocence of childhood.  Inspired by the stories of Peter Pan, the playground will encourage your little ones to explore and follow their imaginations –learning whilst they play.

With a huge pirate ship on its own beach (take buckets and spades) acting as a centrepiece of the playground, this commemorative play area is easily the best bit of Kensington Gardens for children. 

Designed to be accessible and inspiring, your little ones will love playing in the tepees and wigwams as well as exploring the sensory walkways, climbing frames and tree houses.

Appealing to the senses (scented shrubs, whispering willows and bamboo are planted throughout the playground), most of the equipment has been designed for use by children with special needs, including those in wheelchairs.

In  your little one’s most important years of development, the Princess Diana Memorial Playground offers a fun, creative and educational experience in a safe environment.

With toilets and baby changing facilities (as well as ice-cream), the park café is perfect if you haven’t got time to prepare a picnic. And this summer, there’s a programme of free entertainment including storytelling sessions and entertainers – check the website for details.

Opens 10am daily. Click here for more info.
