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.

What’s happening in Greenwich?

In July 2014 the first two play streets were given the go-ahead, after the lobbying and campaigning of residents from two streets led to support from councillors. You can read about it on This is Local London.

Since then play streets have gone from strength to strength in Greenwich. As part of World Car Free Day 2019 fifteen roads were closed, read more about it here.

The Council has a street play policy here and you can contact them on play-streets@royalgreenwich.gov.uk .

If you know anything else about what’s happening here, or you want some help getting started, please do get in touch!

London Play is an organisation that is funded to support play streets in London boroughs. See more details on their website here.
