Kent's best playgrounds?

We love playgrounds. We're always on the look out for good ones - especially when we're away from home for the day.

That's why I asked no price taggers to tell me their favourites. I will have definitely missed out some, so let me know where you and your family like to go!

Danson Park
Danson Road, Bexleyheath DA6

We haven't tried this park yet, but it comes recommended by @_ginger1. As well as the great swings and play area, the park hosts a free 5K run every Saturday morning and a festival every July.

My toddler loves Danson Park in Bexleyheath. Lovely playground, lake, duck pond & lots of green for running about like a loon. @_ginger1

Grosvenor & Hilbert Park
Auckland Road, Tunbridge Wells TN1

Grosvenor and Hilbert Park has real variety in terms of surroundings - hidden nooks & crannies to run around in, plus nice cafe @FeeHorne

Shorne Woods adventure playground
Brewers Road, Gravesend DA12 3HX

A giant adventure playground for older children, and smaller swings and playthings for younger tots. This is the best playground we have found so far. Shorne Woods also has a trim trail and is perfect for little bikes.

Tonbridge Racecourse Sportsground
Castle Street, Tonbridge, Kent TN9 1BG

Tonbridge has a massive playground with kit for all ages. We love the giant sandpits and the zipwires. And Orla is going to try out the little climbing frames next time we go.

A trip to Tonbridge Park can easily turn into a day out, with lovely walks and bike rides through to Haysden Country Park.

Otford Playground
High Street, Otford TN14

Recommended by Bloomers, Otford swings have been repaired and are ready for action! Lovely views of the North Downs. And extra great in the summer if you like cricket as the Otford team plays on the field next to the playground.

Pennington Grounds
Pennington Road, Southborough TN4

Another recommendation - the park has zip wires and a good variety of activities not just swings and slides.
