Growing Play on housing estates in Tower Hamlets
Play Association Tower Hamlets has been growing play around the borough since being set up in 2001. Over the last few years we have worked with communities and their landlords to develop play friendly attitudes and spaces.
The Keep Playing project started in April 2011, funded by BIG Lottery Reaching Communities the projects aim was to work with more landlords and communities to increase play opportunities for children close to home.
The Growing play booklet is a selection of stories and examples which we hope will be of use to anyone who wants to create playful environments for children and the wider community.
