Pensioners' PlaygroundIt's not just kids who get a playground all to themselves. The over-60s can enjoy their own dedicated space in Hyde Park where London's first ever Pensioners' Playground can be found. The 125 square-metre site offers seniors the chance to flex their muscles and keep-fit at a free outdoor gym. There are six pieces of equipment to try out including a cross-trainer, a sit-up-bench, an exercise bike, a flex wheel to work the arms, a free runner and a body flexer. Located next to the Pavilion Tennis and Bowls Centre in Hyde Park, the nearest entrance is Alexandra Gate, Exhibition Road, so you can do your exercises while looking out at the inspiring view of the Albert Memorial.
