Play streets typically allow children to play freely, without organised games or activities.
This means children can cycle, scoot, skate, chalk, skip, hopscotch, kick a ball around and make up games. They are joyous and active!

Would you like to turn your road into a regular ‘Play Street’ for your children and your neighbour’s children to play safely?

Play streets give children a chance to play, be active and make friends on their street, whilst also building community and encouraging active citizenship. As well as these immediate benefits, they can help to bring about a longer-term culture-change, where streets are safer and friendlier and it is more normal for children to play out.
