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.
During Play In Parks there is a great range of playful activities and games for children and their families, our Playworkers wear uniforms with the Play in Parks and BPCN logos.
These projects normally take place during the summer school holidays in different parks across Birmingham. They give children the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities, including playing in team games and engaging in messy play. The children and community are given the chance to revisit gaps in their playful childhoods. The project aims to empower local residents to reclaim their play areas and utilities some of the communities’ recreation spaces to their full potential.
