Recovering from lockdowns & pandemic life and the importance of Outdoor Play


Outdoor play, climbing trees and riding bikes

I used to love taking my kids to the park when they were young and watching them run off to chase our dogs, jump, hide, shout, whistle, climb and explore the natural world.

Wrapped up warm with jumpers and wellies they always arrived back home with rosy cheeks, a healthy glow and a big smile.

Playgrounds are places where children’s play can take off and flourish.
