Once a year children reclaim the streets in the Netherlands. The National Play Outside Day will take place on Wednesday, 14 June 2023. Will your street be taking part? Arrange crowd control barriers on time and don’t forget to apply for a subsidy.

On Wednesday, 14 June 2023 streets throughout The Hague will be closed off to change the city into 1 giant playground. The municipality and the Jantje Beton foundation are calling upon parents, caregivers, playgrounds, schools and youth clubs, interest organisations and associations to take part in the Play Outside Day.
