Urban Playground: How Child-Friendly Planning and Design Can Save Cities (Paperback)

£38.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

What type of cities do we want our children to grow up in? Noisy, polluted and devoid of nature? Or walkable, welcoming and green? At a time of unprecedented urbanisation, inclusivity is essential in our cities. Considering the physical and mental health of those under the age of 18 living in cities, this book joins the dots between progressive, sustainable planning and transportation policies. Providing benefits for all, it explores the ways urban designers and city planners can incorporate child friendly design into their streetscapes - including greater safety, stronger community, better health and a boost to the local economy with retention of families.

Tim Gill is an independent scholar and consultant based in London whose work focuses on children's play, free time and planning. He is former director of the Children's Play Council (now Play England) and a Built Environment Enabler for the Design Council. The New York Times described his 2007 book No Fear: Growing Up in a Risk-Averse Society as "a handbook for the movement for freer, riskier play".
