The City of Kwinana's famous Adventure Park received yet another accolade, the Green Flag Award, last week at the International Parks and Leisure Congress in Melbourne.

The Green Flag Award recognises and celebrates amazing open spaces across the world and is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities and accessibility.

Councillor Wendy Cooper was on hand with Manager of Engineering Services, Reza Najafzadeh on Tuesday, 16 October to accept the Green Flag Award on behalf of the City.

Mayor Carol Adams said the award was hard-earned by a team of dedicated and passionate staff that includes landscape architects, community development officers, engineers and maintenance crew who have all played a part in making the Adventure Park one of the greatest features of the City.

"We are absolutely delighted to receive the Green Flag Award and it is yet another encouraging mark of success for the Adventure Park," she said.

"Our family-friendly Adventure Park has become a major drawcard to Kwinana, attracting people from far and wide to experience all that our wonderful City has to offer."

This will be the fourth award the Kwinana Adventure Park has received to date, having already won 2017 Community Program of the Year, 2017 Playspace of the Year (over $500k) and 2017 Park of the Year.

The state-of-the-art Kwinana Adventure Park is one of the largest universally accessible play spaces in Western Australia. Featuring over a hectare of fully-fenced play space, the Park is set under a canopy of towering trees in Kwinana's City Centre.

"We have worked hard to really put Kwinana 'on the map' and create something unique," said Mayor Adams.​
