Turn your road into a playground for you and your children

Want to get to hang out with your neighbours without leaving your road? If so, here’s how you can book a Play Street to temporarily stop traffic on your road and turn it into a playground for you and your children.

You can have a birthday party, bring out food and drinks, play games or just let the kids ride their bikes and scooters without worrying about cars.

Organising the day is easy. Just follow these simple steps:

  • talk to your neighbours and see who would be interested
  • find a suitable date
  • email cleaner.greener@lbhf.gov.uk to arrange it
  • spread the word with flyers or on Nextdoor to get people to join in.

All the info is available on the Playing Out website.
