Playing Out provides children from 5 years and over with the chance to freely choose their play in an outdoor, staffed play setting.
The Play Ranger Project offers children the opportunity to play freely, actively and safely in spaces within communities using natural/scrap resources. Our provision encourages children to be creative and take risks and be challenged in their play.
Playday is the annual celebration of children's right to play and happens on the first Wednesday in August each year. Play in the Parks are smaller open access play events for children from 5-14 and targeted at specific communities during school holidays.
The Conwy Play Strategy is a strategic document that sets out Conwy's commitment to upholding children's right to play. Along with the Play Strategy Action Plan this document governs the direction of play development in Conwy.
