Unicorns, dinosaurs and kittens are coming to the District Council of Grant!

Described as a digital playground, Magical Park uses augmented reality to project digital experiences onto real environments through electronic devices. The app is geofenced, so it only works within the boundaries that Council set, keeping the kids off the road. Content changes every 6 to 8 weeks, keeping the game new and exciting. So jump off the couch, head down to the Port MacDonnell foreshore and discover the wonders hiding at the park!
