PATH is based at Whitehorse Adventure Playground and working with LBTH teams to keep this well loved and needed play space open for children and young people.
In collaboration with Healthy Cities London, which is a project funded by Morgan Stanley, PATH has been building new play spaces and organising outdoor activities around Poplar area.
Weekly, Wednesday play sessions in the Mile End area of Tower Hamlets, run at either the Cow Garden or Southern Grove community centre, plus special playful events for occasions like Halloween.
From May 2017 to May 2018, PATH helped local parents to use the time when their children were at school to develop their play skills, learn first aid, and find out about local play opportunities.
This project was a local resident initiative to organise weekly play sessions where children themselves were leading the way.
