What are Play Streets?

Play Streets are a good way for you and your children to get to know and have fun with your neighbours. An organised Play Street closes a residential road from traffic for a maximum of three hours, allowing children to play outside. Any cars already parked in the road can stay or leave throughout the duration of the Play Street, but no other cars can be driven along the road.

You can organise for your road to become a Play Street as frequently as once a fortnight. You can set it up for any day of the week.
