Play is an essential part of childhood. But in a busy, densely-populated city, there is not always the space or opportunity for children to get outside. That’s why we introduced ‘play streets’.
Play streets give children the chance to play freely and safely, within a short distance of their home, by letting residents temporarily close their road to motorists.
The traffic-free community events last for three hours and give residents the chance to have a party, and get to know their neighbours a bit better.
Find out more about play streets by reading our leaflet (pdf 2.8MB).
