Princess Diana Memorial Fountain Reviews

I was interested in seeing this and am glad I walked to find it. A lovely tribute to the People's princess. more »
Great place for kids and adults alike. Coming here is always a pleasure on a hot day. Children running around everywhere and families with picnics. It's great to spend an hour or two here and cool down in the fountains which the children (and some adults) like to run in.
A very nice and fitting memorial. This is a short distance from two tube stations so is not far to walk. The memorial has a fence all around the outside and does not appear to have any opening /closing times as such. It may be well worth double checking with the park just to make sure. There were a lot of kids (and some adults) paddling in parts of the monument and the staff did not seem surprised so this is probably common and allowed practice, although it did seem odd.
