"We all remember being children. It's that innate desire to get out there and play"

Around 80% of London's public spaces are streets.  

Play Streets enable residents to temporarily close their street to through traffic, allowing children to play safely on their own doorstep. As soon as the street's closed, the kids know what to do - they know how to play.

This initiative aims to raise awareness of this possibility, and help facilitate the process, promoting the importance of play at its heart across London.
