HUDDERSFIELD play projects are to benefit from a slice of £155m in new lottery cash.
From autumn, communities across the country will be able to apply for the cash to help improve children's play facilities in their area.
The scheme - by the Big Lottery Fund - was announced as part of a new wave of funding programmes.
Sir Clive Booth, chairman of the fund, said: "Our new programmes will provide something for everybody.
"They are about bringing real improvements to communities and people in need.
"They have been created as a result of a major public consultation. People have told us what they want and we are delivering."
The money will form part of a £350m cash injection to improve local environments, focusing on greater accessibility and enjoyment.
It will also see £90m allocated for parks and £165m dedicated to helping communities become healthier.
Adrian Vice, director of the Children's Play Council, said: "The Big Lottery Fund's decision to support a programme for play in England is a fantastic result for children, their families and communities.
"Opportunities for free, unstructured play are essential to children's quality of life and a vital factor in their physical, emotional and social development."
