There used to be an awesome kids playground at Kings Square gardens which is on the corner of Goswell Road and Lever Street, last time I was there there was renovation work going on. Spa fields park is ok, like a little teletubbies playground. It's very nice to sit on the ground floor of Smiths, share the macaroni with smoked haddock and watch the people go by. Angel and Islington isn't far and there's a good walk through Duncan Terrace garden where they have the most amazing bird city (my daughter and I dreamed it was where the fairies lived). Then you can either head down Regents canal or look at weird antique stuff and mad second hand bits on the little lane which I can't remember the name of parallel to Colebrook Row. I used to love wandering with my daughter.
My family and I will be based in corporate housing in Clerkenwell for about 4 weeks, and while we search for permanent housing elsewhere. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what we might do in the area (or nearby) on weekdays/weekends to keep our 3-year old girl busy? Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions/feedback!
