Play Streets is a global movement which aims to bring play back to our local streets. A Play Street is our model for turning your street into a safe-to-play area through temporarily closing streets to traffic for short periods of time.

Play Streets run for a few hours at quiet times of day.

They can be one-off events, but many communities have them on a regular day and find they become a treasured time of the week, fortnight or month.

Play Streets aren’t meant to be big or complicated event, but rather a low key opportunity for communities to meet their neighbours, spend time with friends and play freely and safely on local streets.

A Play Street is:

  • On a quiet road with no public transport routes
  • Supported by other residents in the street
  • Insured
  • Permitted by Council
