Visit Regents Park Playground Hanover Gate in London
On a bright sunny day, this place is packed with Londoner’s but if you visit on a day like we did, overcast and chilly, you have it mostly to yourselves.
It lies within north-west London, partly in the City of Westminster and partly in the London Borough of Camden.
There’s roughly four elements to this playground.
The main attraction is the modern fort playground and rope carousel, painted in bright blue and yellow.
The modern playground has an old-school spiral slide that was the highlight for these busy boys.
Tree Castle Fort
The Tree Castle Fort nature playground is next. This London nature playground is better suited to kids over 5 or 6.
It’s definitely a challenge for kids to traverse all those rope swings, rope bridges, “Mt Everest” diagonal climbing frames, ladders, and nets.
Awesome for parkour enthusiasts!
Sandpit & Swings
Lastly, there’s a giant sandpit and a row of swings.
Inside the sandpit is a water play area, a water pump with timber channels, and raised tables set in sandpit area.
You’ll also spy a swinging hammock nearby.
BYO Picnic to Hanover Gate London
There’s picnic tables, and this playground in London central is fully fenced.
There’s also toilets, pram parking and an undercover shelter should you suddenly need to take cover from the rain!
My boys spent most time between the blue and yellow playground, and the tree fort nature playground.
Jack didn’t even venture over to the swings, quite surprisingly.
We stayed for two hours!
Where is Hanover Gate playground?
To find the Boating Lake and Hanover Gate Regent Park Playground, enter the park through the Baker Street entrance, where you’ll see an information signboard and map on your right.
Walk past that, and you’ll see a body of water and LOTS of pigeons in front of you!
Turn left, and walk the path along the water’s edge.
About 500 metres along, on your right, you’ll spot the Regents Park Boathouse Cafe, and the Boating Lake.
On the day we visited, it was WAY too cold for that kind of nonsense, so it was straight to the Regents Park Playground Hanover Gate for us.
But we did enjoy the wander through the Regents Park gardens. Even in the cold, there’s a beauty about this wide open space in the centre of London city.
