This map shows the growing number of residents and councils who are helping children to play out more. We add information when we hear about activity happening on streets and in neighbourhoods.

You can find out what’s happening where you live and see whether there are other residents 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.

Enfield Council fully supports play streets. You can apply to open your street for play using the form here.

In June 2014, Enfield’s first regular play street began on Devonshire Road in N13. You can read more about it on the  Palmers Green Community website.

If you live in Enfield and would like to get children playing out where you live, you can contact the Devonshire Road organisers by email.

You can also contact London Play’s Street Play Advocacy worker Richard Driffield for support.

The Enfield Play Streets Facebook Group is here.
