‘Make your street a playful street’ initiative
Playful Streets are run by communities and are a low cost, safe and easy way to turn your street into a play space, by limiting access to vehicles for a few hours and opening streets to play. At Playful Streets children and neighbours can safely play and socialize outside — just like you did when you were young!
Playful Streets are meant to be good fun, find out more at www.fingal.ie/playful-streets and register your interest in setting up a Playful Street.
