A recreation reserve located on the Bellarine Peninsula


Ocean Grove Memorial Recreation Reserve is a sporting reserve located between The Avenue and Draper Street in the 'old' area of Ocean Grove.

It's a nice, quiet reserve, away from the main road, and provides a great space to walk or jog around the oval, kick a ball with the kids or throw a ball for the dog.

It features a large sports oval, playground and a community hall. There are rubbish bins located around the oval and buildings, as well as a number of seats and small shelters.

The reserve was previously the home of the Ocean Grove Football and Netball Club, and Ocean Grove Cricket Club, until both clubs relocated to their new home at Shell Road in 2016, however it is still home to a number of other groups and clubs, including:

There is a small playground at the Draper Street end, which is suitable for younger children. The equipment includes a swing set with two swings, see-saw, and a small slide.



Free Parking is available in the streets surrounding the reserve, however there are 'No Standing' signs near the entrance at The Avenue.

When the oval is not in use for sporting events, it's a great place to exercise your dog. Dogs are permitted off the lead while under supervision, however, they are required to be kept on the lead within the playground area.



Extra Information:
Rubbish Bins: Yes
Shade/Shelter: There are several small shelters around the oval, and there is an undercover area near the main buildings.
Public Toilets: Yes
Fencing: Most of the oval and reserve is fenced, however, there are several entrances that open out onto the road (something to keep in mind if you have children or dogs that wander).
