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 Hammersmith and Fulham?

We know that there has been interest in this area and making play streets possible was a commitment in the 2014 Hammersmith and Fulham Labour party manifesto.  Since then some pilot streets have played out, and we know there are some active play streets.

If you live in this area and want to get playing out going on your street, you can contact zanney.simmonds-plummer@lbhf.gov.uk, or call 020 8753 2806.

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