Coram’s Fields is an historic site and a very special place for children in central London.
The seven acre open access playground has been owned and managed by an independent charitable trust since 1936 when, as the Foundling Hospital site, it was saved from development with money raised through public subscription.
The playground has grassed areas for free play and an exciting mix of accessible play equipment for children of all ages and excellent all weather pitches for sporting activities
There are animals in a small pet’s corner of the gardens.
In addition, there is a nursery on-site and a timetable of events throughout the year.
A natural play area opened in Coram's Fields in April 2009 as part of the Play Pathfinder project. The design was inspired by the nearby aviary. Large timber posts are criss-crossed with ropes and nets and give children a bird’s eye view from perch height.
Fruit trees will encourage healthy, natural eating and teach children where food comes from.
