1000 Play Streets is the movement Play Australia is leading to empower Australians to reclaim quiet residential streets across Australia as places for neighbours to connect and play, to ultimately improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities.

Their vision is that children, families, neighbours, pedestrians, bike riders and motorists are given equal priority on our quiet residential streets, to share these important community spaces in a safe and respectful manner every day of the week.

They are working toward achieving 1000 Play Streets in Australia by 2025.

Just because Australia has much warmer and lets face it sunnier weather than us it does not mean that we can't learn from this project to get kids outdoors and communities connected. They have a handy toolkit for local governments to support them make the project happen.
