Scotland's Play Ranger Toolkit

This Play Ranger Toolkit has been developed by the Play Ranger charities supported by Go2Play – focused on growing play opportunities for children and harnessing the expertise of the sector.


This Toolkit is based on an original work written by Dan Rees-Jones which was published by Wandsdyke Play Association ( WPA) in 2008.

Our thanks to Dan for supporting the writing and development of this Scottish Play Ranger Toolkit and to WPA for allowing us to use the original Play Ranger Guide as a baseline.

We also thank the Scottish experts themselves, the Go2Play Play Ranger Ventures, for providing materials and supporting the development of this Toolkit.
