Play East

When: 
14. November 2013 (All day)

Lovely day spent with heroes of the play scene PATH (Play Association Tower Hamlets) at their annual conference for playworkers. The cemetery park isn't exactly the ideal environment for tree swings - mainly because of hazards presented by the jagged stone monuments that are found underneath pretty much every tree! But at least one group managed to find a half decent spot...

Highgate Wood Bromeliad

When: 
30. August 2013 (All day)

Monkey-Do and Highgate Wood embark on a three-day symbiotic relationship, beginning on Friday 30th August and ending on Sunday 1st September! We'll be installing nets and other equipment until around 12 on the Friday, after which we will open our own unique adventure ecosystem in the canopy to the public...

Make like a tree-frog and join us there!

Climb, Swing, Bounce - Parliament Hill 2013

When: 
29. August 2013 (All day)

This is the spot where we first put up nets in the city - although in those days the park-keepers used to come and tell us to take them down. Now they invite us to come and put them up!

We love the Heath like no other place on Earth.

Islington Play Day 2013

When: 
7. August 2013 (All day)

Cape Play Project Grand Opening

When: 
20. July 2013 (All day)

Cape Play Project have been working with the Friends of Parkland Walk to agree some more permanent play features that will be in keeping with the ambience of this secluded nature reserve - and on Saturday 20th July the new features will be officially opened for play.
The installation will include an aerial runway and a series of raised wooden walkways connecting different treehouses beside the Cape building. Monkey-Do will be there helping playworkers to run a tree climbing activity session too - if you're in North London that Saturday why not stroll down the Parkland Walk and join us?
