About This Project

The 2020 review ‘How Play Streets supports the development of physical literacy in children‘ was launched by the Centre for Sport and Social Impact at La Trobe University and commissioned by Play Australia. This review is an evaluation of the 1000 Play Streets project, which aims to ‘support Australians in reclaiming their streets as places to come together with neighbors and play, and improve the health and well-being of individuals and communities’.

The review provides a summary of evidence around street play and how it promotes physical literacy, as well as how Play Streets specifically enhance physical literacy. In addition, several guiding principles are identified that may further enhance physical literacy among children through Play Streets initiatives.
