Description: Russell Brown Adventure Park is a community collaborative project that has achieved a large and wonderful nature based play environment on the banks of the Swan River in Mosman Park. Collaborative partnerships were fundamental in creating a unique and award winning project.

The Park provides for residents, families, schools, educational groups, sporting groups and environmental organisations; an outlet close to home whereby they can observe local flora and fauna and enhance their wellbeing. The park also ensured minimal impact on the natural environment, was designed incorporating existing trees and natural landforms, and used repurposed and recycled materials throughout.

Awards: The Russell Brown Adventure Park won both the WA and Australian Parks and Leisure 2016 Awards of Excellence for the Best Community Nature Play under $500,000.

“Nature Based Play, under the excellent leadership of Terry Farrell, has been a significant player in the development of the Russell Brown Adventure Park in the southern climes of Mosman Park, in Perth Western Australia.  Terry was pivotal in the application of his extensive knowledge, skills and experience to this exciting project.  His professional acumen was complemented by his consummate ability to work with a diverse stakeholder group. His endeavour during construction was outstanding.  The result – an excellent addition to our community facilities, for enjoyment by all ages for years to come.  Well done, Nature Based Play.  Well done, Terry Farrell.”
– Kevin Poynton – CEO Town of Mosman Park

Nature Based Play believes that, especially in the context of Nature Play, there is much to be gained from pursuing a deeper understanding of the cultural, spiritual and educational practices of First Nations peoples.
