There is also a bus stop on Bayswater Rd near this gate. The toilets are by the gate, with the entrance from the street.

Our sitting location is 10 minutes away. If you arrive later, to find us, you take a diagonal path starting from the park’s corner by the gate and walk until the crossing with the second diagonal path. We’ll be there on the left, by the big tree, or nearby (if this spot is already taken).

Something to sit on
Drinks for yourself
Vegetarian food to share
Any outdoor games + musical instruments
