With London being so heavily populated by families, children will always need places to play. Fortunately some of the best playgrounds available can be found in London. From the very centre of town and all the way through the surrounding boroughs, playgrounds and areas for youngsters to enjoy themselves are widespread. A great way to get the kids out of the house and to get them to do something active rather than spending the holidays glued to the television.

Princess Diana's Memorial Playground in Hyde Park is one of the biggest and best playgrounds. With adventure trails, ornamental sculptures, wigwams and an enormous sandy area, all under the imposing structure of a pirate ship, this really is one of the best places in the capital for kids to go a burn up some energy and with plenty of seating for adults too, you can be sure that you too can catch a break from busy city life.

Or maybe you should check out the new playground in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford where there are rock pools, sand pits, treehouses and wobbly bridges. A great fun place that is a legacy of the 2012 Olympic Games.
