Play Streets

The Play Streets initiative aims to make streets more sociable by encouraging neighbours to come together for fun, family-friendly activities. Play Streets events are simple, low cost and low stress. They’re designed and planned by neighbours to meet their needs and often include a mix of activities like chalk drawing on the street, playing games and sports together, playing with toys, like oversized building blocks.
