As per other posts, we are considering moving to Balham and are looking into the area.
Can you please tell me what playgrounds or soft play areas (free or not) are near Balham, i.e. within a 20-minute walk or 10-minute bus ride from Balham station?
I'm familiar with the playground in Clapham Common, and I'd imagine Wandsorth common and Tooting Bec Common probably have their own playgrounds, too, although I have never been and am not sure how far from Balham they (the playgrounds) are.
I understand Gymboree is near Southfields, so that's too far, but maybe there are other soft play areas? Children centres / areas run by the council?
