Play in Parks

Play in Parks & Playday events

Play in Parks (PIPs) and playday events are open access schemes providing play opportunities in parks located within particular areas of Birmingham and is aimed at children aged 5 to 13. The PIP and playday events are managed by Birmingham PlayCare Network with funding and support from a variety of organisations and charitable trusts.


These projects normally take place during the half-term and summer school holidays in different parks across Birmingham, and they give local children the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities, including playing in team games and engaging in messy play. The children and the community are given the chance to revisit gaps in their playful childhoods, and the project aims to empower local residents to reclaim their play areas and utilise some of the communities’ recreation spaces to its full potential.
