Join Ella Angarane, Recreation and Open Space Planner at Bass Coast Shire Council, to explore the Guide Park Regional Playspace and discuss how the project was brought to life. Winner of the Parks and Leisure Australia (Vic/Tas) Playspace Award (>$0.5M) for 2023, the space draws upon extensive community consultation with elements reflecting the Shire’s coal mining history and amazing natural environment.

About Guide Park Regional Playspace

Guide Park is a nature based intergenerational playspace like no other. A homage to the Bass Coast landscape this intricate design sits underneath an avenue of shade trees. With a range of unique, off-the-shelf and nature based elements it provides an open ended environment for people of all aged and abilities to access, socialise and most importantly have fun in.

The project includes a mine themed slide tower, flying foxes, a trampoline, carousel, gentle exercise area and nature based play. Supporting infrastructure also includes a drinking fountain, bike racks, pathways, fencing and an accessible BBQ.
