Barwon Heads Village Park (also known as the 'Pirate Park') has been a favourite for many years and is now even better. A recent upgrade was completed in December 2015, and the new and improved park officially opened earlier this year.
While the colourful totem figures remain, the maze and old pirate ship have been removed and replaced by two separate pirate ships, plus a range of new and exciting play equipment.
The playground is away from the road and hidden behind trees, so the traffic noise is minimal. There is also a fantastic walking track through the Moonah tree forest just a short distance away, as well as the popular Barwon Heads skate park.
