Hundreds of children and families are expected to fill Abington Park today as part of a National Playday event.
Organised by the Northampton Leisure Trust and sponsored by several local businesses and organisations, National Playday is one of Northampton’s largest free play events that encourages children to enjoy play activities.
The playday will run form midday until 4pm and will include a climbing wall, inflatables, reptile display and giant trampolines.
Each year the campaign has a different theme and this year’s theme is Playful Places, which encourages everyone to help make the places where children play, great places to hang out.
The campaign aims to get children to feel welcomed where they live and feel part of their communities
The event will take place at the football fields on the corner of Park Avenue South and Abington Park Crescent and is suitable for children aged 14 and under.
