Greenwich Park is part of the royal parks and overlooks the Docklands and the City. The playground is a very well equipped adventure playground and there's also the added bonus of a children's boating lake nearby too.
Having recently undergone an extensive refurbishment, the equipment includes additional timber play equipment, a mushroom pump for the sand-pit, jumping discs, mud table, climbing poles and small houses to hide and seek in. There is also new planting, new seating and a new path to make it more functional and aesthetically pleasing for you Mum!

The playground has access to coffee and refreshments close by, as well as toilets, and will provide hours of entertainment for your little ones and be the perfect place for a mother's group meet up due to its easy transport options.
After you have a play in the playground you can take your kids for a ride around the lake on the boats during the summer months. As long as your kids are more than one year old, they will enjoy the boat rides. And at only £2 per child, it is a family friendly cost.
Other areas of Greenwich Park that kids will love outside of the playground includes the deer park, wide open spaces to kick a ball and run around, having a ramble through the many nature gardens and visiting one of the many cafes.
Greenwich is actually home to the oldest of London's deer parks and has been home to Red and Fallow Deer since it was enclosed. The perfect time of year to go would be Christmas!
