Up to 5,000 children, parents, carers and play workers are expected to visit Ravenscourt Park on Wednesday August 4 for Hammersmith & Fulham's annual Play Day event.

This summer's free play extravaganza will feature fun and games for children of all ages, with the theme for 2010 being "Our Place". Activities take place from 12 noon until 4pm

This year's Play Day festivities will include a City farm, Softplay for toddlers and a chance to take part in numerous activities and sports. There will also be opportunities to try facepainting and den making plus stalls offering information on childcare, recycling and road safety.

This year there will be a range of food for sale including cupcakes and healthy snacks so parents don't even have to think about a picnic.

Children will also be able to try out the park's new natural and adventurous play facilities.

Cllr Greg Smith, Cabinet Member for Residents' Services, said: "This year's Play Day promises a wonderful day for all of the family and I urge as many people as possible to get down to Ravenscourt Park on Wednesday August 4."

Play Day involves more than 100,000 children taking part in hundreds of activities throughout the UK, from big public events to small gatherings. It is co-ordinated by two charities, the Children's Society and the Children's Play Council.
