A couple of weeks back, we went to Mile End Children’s Park and I wondered to myself, ‘Why don’t we come here more often?’. It’s not far. There’s loads to do and we had a great time, but let’s face it, we’re spoiled when it comes to parks…
… So what has Mile End Children’s Park got to offer?
If you’ve been, you’ll know it’s located a little further beyond the leisure centre. It’s secure – with gates all round – so there’s no fear of any little ones bolting.
On a sunny Friday morning, we had the whole playground pretty much to ourselves and there was plenty to explore. Only the water spray was out of action. There’s a sand pit, swings, a seesaw and climbing equipment that were suitable for the one-year-old and the four-year-old. There’s also plenty of green space for a game of hide and seek. And a nice slide set into the slope.
The one-year-old really enjoyed getting a stick and playing the musical instruments.
If you’ve been to Mile End Children’s Park, you’ll know there’s also a pavilion with a schedule of children’s activities. Check out the timetable here.
A visit to Mile End Children’s Park can be combined with a session in the pavilion, a swim at the leisure centre, a trip to the Ragged School museum, or simply a scoot through the rest of the rest of Mile End park.
