Can anyone recommend a safe playground near Southwark tube? Have a friend and his toddler coming up on Saturday and want somewhere he can have fun/be worn out and sleep so I can catch up in peace with my mate.

Any suggestions?

Christchurch Gardens, Colombo Street. On the left, a few minutes walk up the road towards Blackfriars Bridge. Always empty at weekends - although the pub now opens on Saturday afternoon I think.

Not much play equipment at Christ Church though. Maybe try Nelson Square Gardens or Ufford Street recreation ground.

Or head a little further up to the playground by the London Eye ...

Maybe not close enough, but if I was a kid I'd enjoy the play equipment at Mint St park, vastly underused, not sure why.
