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.

York is able to respond to requests and offer support to residents should they wish to close a street for play.
Street play has been publicised through its Shine magazine for 0-19 year olds.
