Kingsbrook is a new estate near Aylesbury and it seems that it’s going to be great for kids. There are going to be three parks as well as several smaller playgrounds and a nature reserve and a community orchard. We recently visited one of the smaller playground areas on Kingsbrook, which I’ve done a review of below. I’ll be adding to this list of playgrounds as we explore them. Don’t forget you can find all of the playgrounds in the rest of Aylesbury in my ultimate guide. Click here to see them all.
Bellingham Way Playground – Postcode HP20 1DS
The Bellingham Way playground is quite easy to find on the Kingsbrook estate as it’s just off the main road. It has equipment for both toddlers and older children. The toddler area has got lots of soft play surfaces (aka no mud!!). There’s a little house, a 4-way see-saw, a slide, a little play frame and lots of stuff to climb on. It’s all wood equipment which usually lasts better than the metal stuff. The playground is fenced in on all sides (handy given it’s surrounded on all sides by roads) and there’s plenty of seating for adults.
The equipment for older kids is a little bit less interesting. There’s tyre swings, a couple of wobbly frames and a bigger play frame. Realistically I think kids over the age of about 10 probably wouldn’t be interested in playing on here for long. The other thing to note is that this bit is all on the grass. When we visited there was a HUGE puddle and the ground was really waterlogged. If you’re taking older kids here it might be better to avoid if it’s been wet recently. This is a nice little playground with good equipment. Yes, it’s all shiny and new, but I also think it will age quite well.
Burcott Lane Playground – Postcode HP22 5AU
The other playground I know of currently on Kingsbrook is on Burcott Lane near the Dog House pub. It’s quite a small playground but it’s got some decent equipment. I’ll be adding photos as soon as I can.
All the playground areas on Kingsbrook are free
There is no designated parking for any of the playgrounds, but there is on-street parking. Please park considerately for local residents.
There is no on-site food. You could have a picnic on the benches if you wanted to. There is a pub and a Lidl nearby (both of which have customer toilets).
Hi, I’m Vicky. My husband and I live in Aylesbury with out three children; a 10 year old son, an 8 year old son and a 3 year old daughter. I (mostly) love spending time together as a family. We visit all kinds of places and we’re quite happy to drive a fair distance for a decent day out. A few years ago I decided to set up Free Time with the Kids as a way to share our experiences of these family days out. You know, the essential information you need to know before your visit that can be surprisingly hard to find out. Where do I park? How much will it cost me to get in? Are there any discounts available? Are there loos? Can I take a picnic or get food? My aim is to be your go-to guide for all your free and cheap family days out across Bucks, Beds, Oxon, Herts & slightly beyond. I really hope you find the reviews helpful.
