dlr Play Policy 2021

Closed 1 Jul 2021

Opened 4 Jun 2021


We invite you to get involved in the creation of a new Play Policy for Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown and welcome your ideas to help steer the direction that the future of play provision in the county will take.

The last play policy for the county was produced in 2003. Within the intervening period many societal changes has occurred brought about by a multitude of factors, the advancement of technology, dependence on private car, increase in urbanisation, social media, how we keep in touch with one another and a general reliance on convenience related services and products. With this in mind, the need to review and adapt how we perceive and provide play is necessary.

The purpose of the Play Policy is to;

  • To assess Dlr’s current provision for play
  • To formulate a vision for play within the county
  • To draw up a set of policies to guide the delivery of play opportunities
  • Implementation within the county
  • Evaluation and on-going monitoring


  • All Areas


  • Anyone from any background


  • Playgrounds
