It was organised by the MK Play partnership, which includes the council, MK Dons, MK Play Association and The Parks Trust.

Andy Grout from MK Play Association said: “By taking part in MK Play Day locally, we are calling on everyone to help make sure that children and young people across the UK have the time, freedom and space to play outdoors.

“As well as being tremendous fun, outdoor play is crucial for children’s health, well-being and happiness.”
