Free Play is 'old-school play' - play without frills or gadgets, full of imagination, movement and probably a bit of mud too! more info . . .
Come & Play Project - The "Come & Play" Pilot Project will work with two green, natural spaces in 'targeted areas' of the city. These spaces will be developed to become safe and inviting, natural spaces for local children to play freely. more info . . .
