Kensington Memorial Park

The Kensington Memorial Park is a great place to take the kids, not least because it has an excellent water play area, a great playground and a One O'Clock Club - all of which is free. Refurbished as part of the 2006 to 2015 ten year strategy, it is wheelchair accessible and the playground has two play areas - one for toddler with a sand pit, and a larger play area for older children centred on a space rocket climbing frame. But the water play area is the part that really makes it stand out - especially on hot summer days. There's a small kiosk next to it which is open during the summer months selling hot and cold snacks with picnic tables outside. The park also includes tennis courts, football, and cricket. Kensington Memorial Park occupies land bought in 1923 with funds provided by the Kensington War Memorial Committee who wanted to create a suitable tribute to those who had given their lives in the First World War.
