We have some great playgrounds nearby. Lot of them also have amazing sandpits attached, I don't remember them being like that when I was little.
Our favourite local playgrounds are;
Whitehall Rec (great bushes!)
Bromley Library Gardens (the park by the library - and where the pics below are from)
Croydon Road Recreation Ground, Beckenham - paddling pool, lots for littlies, and a train to play in.
Crystal Palace Park - Dinosaurs, farm, sandpit, more dinosaurs, lots of free space to run.
Kelsey Park, Beckenham - an amazing new curly slide which Kit loves, ducks, and lots to explore.
And I have a lovely little boy who insists that I get to play on all the apparatus too!!
Please feel free to add your local favourite playgrounds in the comments. :)
