Beckenham Place Park isn't far and they have a hut near the entrance ("The Place") where they run Toy Library sessions, stay & play and arts & crafts. Goldsmiths Community Centre is about 5 mins away by bus too and they run groups everyday except sunday, even during school holidays.
There's a good stay & play group called ToyBox in Downham Way Family Church on a Thursday - very friendly, very large hall, loads of toys. Rascals in Bellingham is like adventure kingdom but cheaper grin

I've only just moved into the area, Beckenham, and are still discoreving things to do.

There are lots of things to do in both directions from Shortlands;

Kelsey Park in Beckenham is great with a nice playground and birds to feed.
Beckenham Spa has a great swimming pool for children and a softplay area. Another, bigger softplay area can be found at Gambado's. And the mentioned Beckenham Place park is great for walks, football and picnics. There's also a playground next to it with water feature.

In Bromley you can find playgrounds and children's swimming pool with waves (my three year old loves it!).
