When the kids were little the standard deal whenever we were going shopping was we would grab sometime in a park/playground after. So this little playground is close to Waitrose Barbican branch on Whitecross Street. Back then it was a rather scruffy Safeway. Anyway a few years ago the park had new kit installed along with a hard surface football/basketball pitch and a nature area. Good swings - I still love the swings being a big kid at heart and often quiet. I still cut through here and take a seat on their benches with a coffee ever now and then - no kids in tow any more though. Quieter than Fortune Park which is the other option near Waitrose.
