Anglesey Come and Play

We found that lots of people believe children should be playing outside more and inside less but adults often find it difficult to let children go out to play. These pages aim to give you some new ideas about where you can go and what you can do when playing outside.

These pages include some of the best beaches, parks, playgrounds, woods and nature reserves in Anglesey. All the entries are labelled with facilities that the space offers although there are loads of activities we haven’t included and it’s up to you to come up with them!

We hope that with the help of this guide you will put your wellies on and run, jump, splash, climb, hide and seek, paddle and crawl your way through some of the best play spaces Anglesey can offer.

We think it is important for children to have time to play outside with their families and equally important to spend time with friends exploring their local community. We think the best type of play is when children are given the time, space and permission to choose what they want to do.

We call this play that is freely chosen, intrinsically motivated and self directed.

Engaging in freely chosen play can have some of the following amazing benefits:

  • Extending skills
  • Developing physical and emotional capacities  
  • Challenging ourselves in new ways and gaining direct experience of the consequences of our actions     
  • Building resilience  
  • Attachments to people and places                        
  • Increased well being and mental health           

IT’S REALLY FUN !!!
