This map shows the growing number of residents and councils who are helping to enable children to play out more. We add information to it when we know of activity happening on streets and in neighbourhoods.
You can find out what’s happening where you live and see whether there are others doing things locally who are happy to give you support and advice. Our Local Authority Directory lists the areas where most change is happening. If you are already doing something on your street and it’s not yet on the map, please email us to let us know.
In June 2014 a street in Kentish Town held its first play street, you can read about it in the Kentish Towner and they are now planning regular street play sessions.

You can find out more about the council’s play street policy here.
You can also contact London Play’s Street Play Advocacy worker Richard Driffield for support.
