Kensington Memorial Park
Kensington Memorial Park covers 2.7 hectares of green space and was opened to the public in 1926. It was created as a tribute to the people who had given their lives in World War I. The park is home to lovely perimeter and poplar trees and avenues as well as beautiful green lawns and circular rose beds. It's a great park for the family to visit, with it's wide range of features and activities to do.
There are two children's play areas. One of them is catered for younger children that has a sandpit to play in. The second one is designed for older kids who want to be more adventurous and explore the different features like the climbing frame that has been made in the shape of a space rocket, a merry-go-round etc. The seasonal water play facility is probably the most attractive feature of the park where kids can have lots of fun splashing around in pool and playing with the 33 interactive water features such as sprays built in the ground. This is perfect for those hot summer days!
There's also the option to play tennis in the tennis courts as well as football and cricket, great for sporty children!
