Street Play Pilot Program

Nominations for pilot program closed 2 October 2020.

Feedback on proposed street play locations is open.

In Spring 2020, Council launched a popup ‘Street Play’ pilot program, where streets are transformed into public open spaces for kids to play and the community to enjoy.

Streets participating in the program will be temporarily closed to through traffic or have additional parking restrictions so that road space can be ‘opened for people’ (access to properties will be maintained at all times through formal traffic control).

Council has received a large number of requests to participate in the program and identified streets for the first 5 street play days in areas where there was high levels of interest (see key dates). However, there are potentially additional opportunities to have a ‘play day’ in December 2020 or in autumn 2021, so we encourage you to get in contact with us (details below) to discuss your idea with Council.

Colin Street, Cammeray - Sunday 6 December 2020 from 12.30pm - 5.30pm

Council is seeking feedback on the fifth proposed street play day in Colin Street between 12.30pm and 5.30pm on Sunday 6 December for a street play day. The street will be closed to traffic from the intersection with Carter Street, and approx. 25 parking spaces near to the midpoint of the street will be unavailable at this time. Formal traffic control will be in place to allow resident access to/from their property at these times if critical; however, we would encourage you to avoid vehicle trips along the street during these times as the ‘play’ activities will be taking place and would need to be moved off the road prior to access being provided.

To ask questions about the program or discuss your ideas for an event contact Council’s Sustainable Transport Projects Coordinator, Lindsay Menday at Lindsay.Menday@northsydney.nsw.gov.au or 9936 8100.
