The Kensington Memorial Park
water play facility is now operational. It will be open seven days
a week from 10am until 6pm.
Kensington Memorial Park has been a public
park since 1926 when it was opened to the public by Princess
Louise, Duchess of Argyll.
The land was bought in 1923 with funds provided by the Kensington
War Memorial Committee who wanted to create a suitable tribute to
those who had given their lives in the First World War and felt
that a new recreation ground would be an ideal memorial.
