Do you have fond memories of spending most of your childhood playing outside? Alice Ferguson and Amy Rose wanted to give their children the same opportunities for free play outdoors as they had when they were young, so they started the Playing Out project to create play spaces in their neighborhood. This video captures the joyful play of the children and unexpected benefits for the adults as well in the pilot project on 6 streets in Bristol, U.K.
