Hyde Park, London
Hyde Park, London
The centre of The Diana, Princess of Wales' Memorial Playground which was opened in June 2000. It was erected after her death at a cost of 1.7 million on the site of an existing Peter Pan Children's Playground that had been founded during the life time of J.M.Barrie, although this version is much larger and more elaborate than the original. The design was inspired by the Peter Pan story. At the age of 23 yrs J.M. Barrie joined the staff of the Nottingham Journal - living in Birkland Avenue and Peel Street - and it was whilst walking through Clifton Grove with a friend that he found his inspiration for Peter Pan. This play area is approximately 200 metres inside the north-west corner of the park near the Bayswater Road boundary fence and a 10 minute walk from Kensington Palace, the late Princess's home.
