Play in the Park

Play in the Park - a free play programme of fun, creative activities and events.

Being in nature from a young age, exploring, playing and connecting with wildlife and the outdoors can have huge benefits for children and their families.*  

The Play in the Park project offered a free play programme of fun, creative activities and events inspired by the parks’ wildlife and open spaces in The Regent’s and Greenwich Parks.

Funded by The London Marathon Foundation and delivered in partnership by The Royal Parks and charity London Play, the project benefitted thousands of local families with free child-led play, created local partnerships and celebrated play for play’s sake.
