See how the street play movement is growing across the UK

We’re adding a pin for every area where parents, residents, a community organisation or the council (and ideally, all of them together) are starting to change things for children through play streets and related ideas. The movement is growing! See what’s happening near you by entering the name of your local authority (council) in the box below. Tell us if you want to get something started in your area – or if there’s anything to add to our map!

If you’d like to play out in Calderdale, get in touch with us or with your local councillor for more information.

After 3 years of lobbying, Councillor Ashley Evans is encouraged that the council might drive the project forward in the borough.
