Abstract Schools are an important setting for children's physical activity. Evidence suggests that playgrounds have the potential to enhance physical activity levels and play opportunities. Although schools are acknowledged as a key setting for physical activity, it remains unclear what factors within play spaces facilitate children's physical activity and which are potential barriers to activity. The aim of this research was to undertake a qualitative investigation to explore children's perceptions of which factors within play spaces would encourage them to be active.
