Case Studies

What would parks and public spaces designed for girls look like? A small number of schemes have been designed in Europe, which have come to a remarkably similar set of conclusions and proved that it is possible to make a park much more appealing to girls without incurring vast cost.

The interventions include

  • better lighting
  • more swings
  • good quality toilets.
  • wider entrances to play areas
  • smaller, subdivided sports areas
  • adding a second more open court
  • seating areas which are arranged in groups
  • circular paths around the edge of the park

But the key recommendation is always that these schemes should be taken as inspiration rather than a template because the most important step of all is to ask the girls what they want from the places in which they live.
