Our Story

Just say “yes”

Founded by mates David ‘Christo’ Christopher and Dion Waite, Brown Park embodies an ethos and a community that reminds us that, no matter the situation, no feeling or situation is permanent. Christo is open about his experiences with depression, and the seed of the idea for Brown Park came about when he and Dion decided to shake things up by saying yes to adventure, opportunity and growth.

Instead of giving into his depression, pulling the covers up and hiding in bed for the day like he wanted to, Christo made a concerted effort to say yes to everything. A walk on the beach? Sure. A hike up (and then back down) Mount Warning? Why not. A week’s vacation in sunny, radioactive Chernobyl?! Let’s do it!

The boys’ biggest ‘yes’ came about when they cooked up the idea for this brand – which aims to encourage others to step into their potential and celebrate what is possible in life.

When we’re feeling sad, hurt, distressed, depressed, frustrated, like it’s all just too much, and we want to get off the rollercoaster… when we reach those moments, it can feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

Brown Park exists to remind you that it gets better.

BNPK Co-founder Christo is also the founder of Dads With Depression, a website and private Facebook group where anyone experiencing depression can join and access support and friendship.

If you (or someone you know) is struggling with anxiety, depression or less than optimal mental health, support is available:
