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 parkour, reptile handling and scooter lessons. 

Sessions are suitable for everyone, including those with accessible needs. Please call our team if you need any further information. A parent or carer may 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. 


How to register

All children must register before taking part. You can either register on the day with our team, or you can register online in advance (after we have published the dates). You can register online up to 12pm on the Friday before that week's sessions.

If your child is:  

  • under six, they must be supervised by an adult parent or guardian for the whole session. One adult can supervise a maximum of three children per session. 
  • under eight, they must be dropped off and picked up by an adult. The adult will need to set up a password with us on arrival and provide the same password when collecting the child. 
  • over eight, they can come and go without an adult, but they must provide any relevant medical information and emergency contact details when they register.  

Essential information

  • If your child wishes to leave a Play in the Park session, a play worker will call you on the emergency contact number you have provided.  
  • If your child decides to leave Play in the Park of their own accord, play workers are not allowed to use physical force to ensure they stay.
