See how the street play movement is growing across the UK.
Find out what’s happening where you live and if there are streets already playing out. We know that there are many active streets not listed here so please let us know of anything you are doing so we can add it to the map. You can also check our Local Authority Directory to see if your council has a street play policy yet.

The Croydon Play Streets facebook page is a good place to find people already organising street play in Croydon.
