Despite a growing trend toward the restriction of children’s use of public space, geographies of play cannot simply be reduced to a trend toward curtailment and impoverishment. There has also been a move toward the diversification and commodification of “indoor” play. To this end, geographers have examined the spaces of the youth club (Skelton 2000), the after-school club (Smith and Barker 2000), and commercialized leisure spaces (McKendrick et al. 2000). While the latter are a direct reaction to discourses of fear about dangerous streets, they do not simply induce a loss of children’s freedom to public space.

18 20 22 26 30 32 Abstract In many ways, twenty-first century (western) childhood may be characterized by a cacophony of moral panics. Spatiality is pertinent, if not central, to these moral panics, not least those concerning contemporary children’s play. Yet, despite this, the presence of spatiality within play research beyond the geographical discipline is, at best, marginal. This chapter examines how geographical work is well placed to challenge problematic characteristics of agenda-setting discourses about children’s play.
