The Edinburgh Playscape

Transforming unused pockets of Edinburgh public life into an informal playscape - family event aimed at rediscovering play outside of playgrounds in the City of Edinburgh

Stockbridge Market Square
Saunders Street

Fully accessible / Level access / Assistance dogs welcome / Children welcome

What is the difference between a playground and a playscape? How can our children build memories and connections with their local environments? In our busy City it is easy to prescribe play to a time slot and a swing set, but how can we define its value and quality? Bring your family to the Edinburgh playscape to explore ways to play with the landscape and discover the city from a different perspective. The Event will transform Stockbridge Market Square into an informal playscape guided by professional playscape designers and play enthusiasts and will feature loose parts play, activities, ideas and printed Edinburgh playscape trail maps.
