On a sunny summer days, particularly if you are up and about early, there is a great north London spot to head to.  Parliament Hill Fields (part of Hampstead Heath) has a paddling pool from heaven (as far as a child thinks) and a playground designed by the most fun person ever.  But get there early ... by late morning the paddling pool is very crowded and the playground a potential 'lost sight of your kids very easily' kind of place but at the right time of day - it is happiness all round ... and when it does get all too busy, bring along your Frisbee and enjoy the vast expanses of the heath outside the play park (whilst play parks are fun for kids I strongly believe that they should enjoy wide open spaces just as much).
