Pop up Parks By Pop up Parks

A Pop up Park brings colourful vibrant play spaces to urban spaces. A Pop up Lock up enables children and families to create a secure and creative Pop up Park play space near to high streets.

Southwark Delivery stage

pledged of £9,019

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Hello, we are Pop up Parks. We bring outdoor play space to urban places for children and families across Southwark. We rapidly create pop-up park spaces using colourful and vibrant materials. We work in urban areas across Southwark but we want to be able to give communities the chance to Pop up their own park spaces.

We will do this by creating 'Pop up Lock up' a secure lock up space that can store materials that we design with children and families. The lock up will then be accessible to those who signup to it. It belongs to the community!

The beauty of a pop up is that it enables people to come together, meet one another and create their own mini park spaces. We are particularly interested in early years education and supporting children aged 0-5 and their families.

By supporting this project you will be helping children gain access to public space where they can be more playful, creative and physically active. We think this is a great addition to the local high street.

What we'll deliver:

  • Install and decorate the lock up unit and pack it full of colourful and creative play props designed by children
  • Create a Pop up Lock up unit that enables children and families to design their own Pop up Park
  • Grow our network of local families who would like to run Pop up Parks in Peckham

Why it's a great idea:

We have run Pop up Parks in Peckham Rye in 2014 and continue to run them in 2015. We have had some brilliant feedback from parents, carers and children who think Pop up Parks are brilliant spaces that enable children to be playful outdoors. They allow children to make new friends, be more active and heathy and ultimately have fun!

Pop up Lock up is a good idea because it allows those who have access to the Lock up to be able to create a Pop up Parks any day of the year without Pop up Parks having to be present. We believe this leaves a lasting legacy for children in Peckham. It is run by families for families.

Steps to get it done:

  • We have spoken to Southwark Council Highways and have permission to create play spaces in the areas
  • We have tested Pop up Parks with families and they would like to see more, so there is an appetite!
  • We are now applying to Southwark for the permanent installation of a Pop up Lock up
