Barwon Coast are responsible for management and maintenance of facilities including playgrounds that are located in our coastal reserves. Barwon Coast’s Outdoor Maintenance Team ensure these public open spaces are clean, enjoyable and safe space for all visitors. Find out about the playgrounds managed by Barwon Coast below.

Frank Ellis Reserve Park

There’s the river, the beach and the park all in one location at The Frank Ellis Reserve Park. Nestled on the banks of the Barwon River, sand forms the footfall, slides and swings provide the fun and the calm river beach delivers further entertainment. This local park is a family favourite and rightly so!


Kurrak Playground

This exciting playground celebrates Wadawurrung culture and the local coastal environment.
Located next to the Dunes café and Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club, the playground called Kurrak, meaning sand in Wadawurrung language, features accessible designed equipment for pre-school and lower primary-aged children. Through beautiful artworks and signs the playground also celebrates seasonal stories of the Wadawurrung People, providing an opportunity for children and their carers to learn and discover as they move throughout the playground.
