Active Play

Engaging children in play allows them to explore, identify, negotiate, take risks and create meaning - it can help shape the structural design of the brain, by building and strengthening brain pathways. Playing is central to children’s physical, mental, social and emotional health and wellbeing. Children learn through play while developing resilience, flexibility and understanding of their world. Play in families enriches childhood. All children and young people have a right to play. 

Cork Sports Partnership in conjunction with Cork Healthy Cities and members of the URBACT ULG local group; Foroige, Cork City Council, Cork County Council, Cork City Libraries, Young Knocknaheeny, and Healthy Ireland have developed "Let's Play Cork" a series of play inititaives and projects for the people of Cork.
