Natural play and your environment
Working with you to create natural features and interesting spaces. Russell Play has introduced a range of elements to complement our natural play designs. These play elements encourage children to explore and interact with the natural world and use their imagination to invent new play experiences. Because no two natural elements are alike and the wild spaces vary according to the weather and the season, children can experience a multitude of different play activities and sensations.
Russell Play provide a comprehensive design, drawing and consultation package to enable our customers to visualise natural play designs to the fullest extent. Click here to view a few examples.

Research has provided strong evidence that it can develop childrens' imaginative and social skills, encourages a greater level of physical activity and allows them to experience and deal with moderate risks.
Russell Play have an in-house design resource to produce drawings which enable our customers to visualise natural play designs. We have introduced a range of glacial boulders which can be incorporated into a play scheme to encourage children to explore and interact with the natural world and use their imagination to invent new play experiences.
