Play Works (page 1 of 1)

Play Works kicked off in summer 2015 thanks to a £138,000 grant from the City of London Corporation’s charity, City Bridge Trust. London Play will work with 12 adventure playgrounds and other play projects across London over the three years to summer 2018, helping them to monitor and evaluate the impact of what they do and better make their case for survival.

"Still something of a newbie on the play scene, it was only a couple of summers ago that I walked into an adventure playground for the first time; a surprise discovery cycling through north London on a hot summer’s day."

‘Austerity’ has hit London’s adventure playgrounds hard. Two iconic sites - at Battersea and Brent - have closed in the past couple of years and many of the capital's 80 or so other unique adventure playgrounds are locked in battles for survival.
