Play Day comes to Williamson Park

Lancaster City Council is inviting you to celebrate national Play Day nest week, with an action packed day of activities and adventure at Lancaster's Williamson Park.

The event is part of the Get out and play! campaign, which is calling on everyone to help make sure that children and young people across the UK have the time, freedom and space to play outdoors.

As well as promoting children's right to play, the campaign is highlighting that outdoor play is crucial for children's health, well-being and happiness.

On Wednesday 1st August, children will have the chance to take part in face painting, treasure hunts and lots of fun games. There will also be music, a huge bouncy castle, a climbing wall, a water slide, inflatable twister, body zorbing, cycle skills and loads more!

The fun begins at 10.00am. It’s free to take part and there is no need to book.  Just come along with your friends and have a great time! The event finishes at 4pm.  Children under eight must be accompanied by an adult.

Councillor Ron Sands, Cabinet member with responsibility for tourism and culture, said: “National Playday has become an exciting fixture on the events calendar at Williamson Park and aims to highlight children's right to play and the importance of play in children's lives.

"With so many activities available throughout the day, and all for free, it is definitely not one to miss!”
