Thousands attend free play day in Denbighshire

Thousands of people turned out to enjoy a free day of play in Denbighshire.

The event at Rhyl’s Oak Tree Centre was organised by Denbighshire County Council’s Community Well-being Team to help children enjoy their summer holiday as part of national Play Day.

Children took part in a host of activities including a waterslide, computer deconstruction, imagination playground, messy play, ninja training camp, disability sports, soccerama, arts and crafts and a bungee run. 

Dawn Anderson, Denbighshire’s childcare manager, said: “This year was the busiest and best Play Day event yet.

“At least 2,000 people attended this year’s event and the feedback from both children and parents, was really positive.

“There was a great family atmosphere and the day was enjoyed by all.

“We had people travel from all across Denbighshire and North Wales from as far as Anglesey and Bangor which is fantastic.

“Play is a fundamental part of children's lives and promoting the well-being of children is one of the Council’s priorities.”
