Designing for Play

Put your questions and comments to the authors of Design for Play: A guide to creating successful play spaces (Play England, 2008):

How do we design better play spaces? How to include natural elements? How do we design for inclusive play? Do we need a fence? Can we have sand and water? How do we deal with vandalism?

  • What makes a good place for play?
  • How can we make public spaces more playable and welcoming for children?
  • Consultation or Engagement?

Practical information about handling key issues including:

  • boundaries and fencing
  • play equipment
  • including natural elements
  • surfacing
  • and maintenance.

This online discussion forum will be available from 16 to 27 June 2008.
