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 Lewisham?

In Lewisham we know of a few streets that have closed for play sessions on a one-off basis and are hoping to make it a regular thing.

If you live in Lewisham and would like to close your street for play, you can contact the council via this page.

We really loved reading this blog about this play street that was held as part of Car Free Day in 2019.

If you know of anything else happening in this area, or want some extra support from us to get going, please do get in touch!
