The City of Play is a unique social enterprise; an multi-disciplined design practice that helps communities create inclusive and engaging ‘places of play’ all across Scotland and beyond.
We know ‘play’ improves the quality and longevity of people’s lives, strengthens communities and improves the perceptions and value of the areas which provide for it.
Child Friendly Cities are the best way to truly facilitate free play and engage children with their built and natural environments. We use design, research and creative community activities to make everyday spaces vibrant ‘places of play.’
We employ our playful design ethos to public art, landscape, architecture, urban design and planning; delivering successful outcomes through a participatory process; empowering communities while fostering a sense of ownership and duty of care.
