Playday 2013 took place on Wednesday 7 August.
The campaign theme for Playday 2013 was Playful Places.
The Playful Places campaign called on everyone to help make sure that the places where children live and hang out are great places to play. The campaign recognised that:
- Children should feel welcomed where they live and feel part of their communities.
- Parents want their children to be able to play outside.
- Public space should be designed and managed with children's play in mind.
- Children and young people need to be involved in planning the places and spaces where they play.
