Camden Council was one of thirty local authorities to successfully bid for the government’s £235m investment in playgrounds, as part of the National Play Strategy, launched in 2008. Developing Projects was commissioned to manage the design and construction of a series of ‘natural play’ projects on 28 sites around the Borough. Play workshops were used to inform the designs, using storytelling and games to help children imagine the possibilities for each space.
