Design for Play: a guide to creating successful play spaces

This award winning guide aims to transform the design of play spaces. Design for Play explains how good play spaces can give children and young people the freedom to play creatively, while allowing them to experience risk, challenge and excitement. There is also advice on how play spaces can be affordably maintained.

Overall, Design for Play sets out a new approach, tackles some current myths, and challenges providers to think more laterally and creatively about children and young people.

Produced in association with the Free Play Network, Play England believes this advice will help those involved in commissioning and designing play spaces to put play value at the heart of their work.

NB This guide was produced to support the play pathfinder and playbuilder programme, to help develop existing and new play spaces. As such, some policy and other references may now be out of date.

This Design for Play guide was written by Aileen Shackell, Nicola Butler, Phil Doyle and David Ball.
