CSAW Play in the Park hero

Play in the Park runs at multiple community venues during the Easter and summer school holidays, for children aged between three and 11.

Children can join our Playworkers to play, create and take part in fun sports, games and craft activities at a park near you. Some sessions also feature additional activities such as inflatables, reptile handling and scooter lessons. 

Sessions are suitable for everyone, including those with accessible needs. Please call our team on 01245 606569 if you need any further information. A parent or carer will be required to stay during the session.

Please make sure you child has suitable clothing for playing games, a drink and a snack, and is prepared for any weather.
