Aurora Boardwalk Park Now Open
Aurora’s community playspace between Wimmera Crescent and Aberfeldy Grove is now ready for the families of Aurora to enjoy. Pack your sunscreen and hats and head on over to let your imagination run free.
The native inspired landscaping means that the spider’s web and climbing frames fit in seamlessly with the rest of Aurora’s wide open spaces. This is important because the Boardwalk Park is located right in the heart of Aurora’s conservation zone. To protect the local flora and to give you great views over your neighbourhood, there is a boardwalk perfect for an easy stroll or to incorporate as part of your exercise routine. There are also six swings and two slides so there is plenty of room for lots of kids to run around.
Aurora Boardwalk Park has been specifically designed to preserve the Indigenous heritage of the area. The park will soon incorporate an educational signage journey that explains the significance of the flora, fauna and how the landscape was used before modern times. This was a place where the Wurundjeri people collected their food, made their canoes, set up camp and held significant communal ceremonies. A walk around the boardwalk overlooking the conservation area will be a unique glimpse into Australia’s rich Indigenous cultural history.
