The Diana, Princess of Wales' Memorial Playground opened on the 30th of June 2000, in memory of the late Princess Diana. Located next to her Kensington Palace home, the playground is a fitting tribute for a princess who loved the innocence of childhood.
Over 1,000,000 visitors enjoy this free playground every year. Kids love to play, explore, dash about, and let their imaginations soar. The playground's centrepiece is a wooden pirate ship, and it also includes a sensory trail, tepees, a beach around the pirate ship and various play sculptures, all set against a lush backdrop of trees and plants. There's plenty of seating so the grownups can relax too.
The playground was specially designed to create an area where less able and able-bodied children can play together and seeks to provide for their physical, creative, social, and educational development. Inspired by the stories of Peter Pan, being in such a magical environment encourages children to explore and follow their imaginations, learning whilst they play.
