The PlayScapes project was developed in 2004 to compliment Wirral Play Council's Outreach Play Project, 'PlaySpaces'.

Earlier that year, we began consulting with children and young people, aged 5-13, on small environmental improvements to their play areas which would enhance their freely chosen play opportunities.

Funded by Wirral's LSP through Neighbourhood Renewal Funds The Neighbourhood Renewal Fund provided a grant for work undertaken within the five local NRF wards; Birkenhead, Bidston, Leasowe, Tranmere and Seacombe.  Within those areas, several play spaces were selected for physical improvements, ranging from replacement lighting to new fixed play equipment.

The improvements can be viewed from the Gallery link above.
