Play Streets temporarily stop traffic in a residential street, cul-de-sac or square, creating an opportunity for children to play safely outside.
Parents and neighbours host sessions by closing the street and bringing out toys and play equipment to share. By inviting everyone out, we can enjoy our streets together near our own front doors.
Would you and other people on your street like to start a play street?
You can attend the session below to get a real feel of what can be created or you can email one of the team to discuss further firstname.lastname@example.org
