Quite a nice little playground. If you want to get to it with the least amount of walking then get off at Queensway tube stop. From there cross the road and the playground is on your right.
Fantastic playground! Having walked all the way there from the Science museum, we also found out the hard way exactly whereabouts on Kensington Gardens it's actually located. Do not confuse it with Diana's Memorial Fountain, which is in the Hyde Park bit and a good ten or 15 minutes' walk away! :-) Once there the kids absolutely loved it, apart from the queue to get in, which I guess was unavoidable on a hot Saturday. But it was quick enough. Re. food, we had a bag full of picnic food we only managed to get the kids interested in once we left the park, they were so busy discovering everything it has to offer.
Actually - twinkle's comments about the location of the park are also incorrect. The closest tube station to the playground is actually Queensway - just cross the road into Hyde Park and it's on the right behind a hedge (just off the broadwalk before the carousel. You may have to queue to get in, but the limit ensures that the actual park is not too busy and there are loos and food options in there.
