Serving the people of Stroud to create a thriving, sustainable community

Free Outdoor Play Scheme

Children in Stroud can enjoy a free outdoor play scheme, thanks to the Town Council.

The Town Council is funding weekly outdoor Play Gloucestershire sessions in Mason Road playing field and Archway Gardens Play Space.

Children can come and go as they please and there is no need to register. It is open to children and young people aged 7 to 14. Children under seven are welcome if accompanied by a parent or carer.

Children can play informal sports, build dens, active games such as tag, water fights, hide and seek, creative art, using and adapting existing play equipment.

"This results in all ages and abilities playing together on a shared community space from toddlers to teenagers to grandparents," says Pip Levett, Director of Play at Play Gloucestershire.

"We're thrilled that the Town Council understands that play is good for children, good for families and good for communities. So many good things happen to children when they are given the time and space for play in their home community."

The Play Rangers are at Mason Road on Tuesdays and at Archway Gardens on Thursday. Both sessions run from 4pm-6pm. The sessions run weekly until 21 October.
