Street Play applications now open

We're looking for seven streets to transform into outdoor pop-up events for the whole community to enjoy. If your street is chosen as one of the seven sites, it will temporarily close to traffic on a selected Sunday date between March and May, so that it can be used for games and activities.

By nominating your street, it could become a hub for the community to meet, connect and play. Council will select seven streets out of those nominated based on the following criteria:

  • level surface
  • adequate shade and ambient noise levels
  • low/manageable impact on traffic, property access and public transport
  • a mix of sites across different parts of North Sydney

Not sure if your street is suitable? Council staff can work with you to determine its appropriateness. You can share your ideas for activities and games, and we can help you design, plan and deliver the best-suited pop-up event.

In 2020, Council ran a successful pilot of Street Play. Five streets were closed off for ball games, giant connect four, scooter ramps, chalk drawings, musical performances and more.

Residents will still be able to access their properties during the temporary road closures if their street is selected for the 2023 Street Play program.

Nominate your street today.

Nominations close 29 January 2023.
