4) Bishop’s Park, Fulham
Located off Fulham Palace Road, with a memorable house to walk by on the way in, this is a great park to visit with kids. It has a lovely play area with a little wooden train, swings, slides etc. We like the woodchip they have on the ground and it is really well-maintained. Near the playground is a little cafe for a break and there is even an ‘urban beach’. When it’s summer, there will be a water play area. In the meantime, you can at least enjoy the Thames River walk or the ornamental lake.
It’s easiest to reach on the tube to Putney Bridge followed by a short bus ride on the 74, 220 or 430 bus to Bishop’s Park Road.
5) Princess Diana Memorial Playground
Located in Kensington gardens with lots of different areas divided by greenery; it makes you feel like a bit of an explorer as you head off from the central pirate ship and wander to the other areas. There is a music corner and there are a few slides as well as sandpit- take some spades! When you’ve had enough, go for a wander to the lake and see the swans before wandering through the vast park joining up to Hyde Park. The nearest tube is Queensway.
