Glasgow was so game for Street Play back in June that the city is set to do it all over again this September. Now, to mark this year’s International Car Free Day, Street Play will be available in the city for the second time this year, this time on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 September.

In an unprecedented move, the council is repeating the offer of free road closures to residents, local groups and community-based organisations who want to turn their local streets into temporary playgrounds for local children.

It follows the huge success of the Street Play event in June this year, which saw the council facilitate 25 road closures across the city to allow communities to enjoy the benefits of a traffic-free day close to home.
