Parliament Hill Adventure Playground is a fully fenced adventure playground that is perfect for all ages, especially adventurous toddlers who are really into climbing. Situated on Hampstead Heath, Parliament Hill offers beautiful views across London.
"Parliament hill park. Best park I've been to by far. In summer it's great as they also have a little swimming pool next to park and an actual outdoor pool too" - LMG Member
It features huge forts and climbing structures, where children can clamber and climb like little spiders and test themselves to their limits. But there is plenty of places to hold on and a soft bottom for any spills that occur.
There are slides, tunnels, steps to climb, monkey bars, spinners and balance beams, and while it does get very busy, it is a really big adventure playground so lots of equipment for everyone. And because it is fenced, you can relax a little.
The playground also has areas for imagination play, including sand play with pulleys that kids can fill with sand and try to figure out.
There are some shady spaces with covered shelter sheds and picnic areas, but the rest of the play area is no shelter, so be sure to pack your hat and sunscreen on a hot day.
The playground is right next door to the paddling pool, perfect for splash play on a hot summers day. It is not deep at all, so you can take young babies here too. And if you are looking for a coffee, head to the cafe at Parliament Hill.
Opening Hours: Summer 10am to 30 min before sunset. Winter 9am to 4pm. Entry for children under 12 and their caregiver only
Location: Marquee Tent and Bandstand, Hampstead Heath, London, NW3 2TY
