New ‘Kurrak’ Playground for Ocean Grove Main Beach

Project Overview

A new playground has being built at Ocean Grove Main Beach.

This exciting new playground at Ocean Grove Main Beach that celebrates Wadawurrung culture and the local coastal environment is located next to the Dunes café and Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club. The playground is called Kurrak, meaning sand in Wadawurrung language and 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.

The design of the playground was shaped by consultation with the local community and the Wadawurrung Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation.

Barwon Coast was able to deliver the project thanks to $180,000 funding from the Victorian Government.
