Korman Family Park

Australia / The Pacific

Korman Family Park was named after Stanley Korman (1904-1988) and his niece, Geulah Korman (ca 1919-2015) to honour their contributions to the Gold Coast community. Stanley Korman was a visionary and entrepreneur who is credited with putting the Gold Coast on the map in the 1950s. Inspired by time spent in Miami, Florida, he introduced innovative high rise and canal estate developments. He built the first high rise building in Surfers Paradise, the Kinkabool Hotel, as well as developing Paradise and Chevron Islands.Geulah Korman opened one of the original boutique dress shops at Surfers Paradise called Riviera Casuals. Her ensembles won the Gold Coast’s Concours d’Élégance competition five times between 1969 and 1972. This upmarket event united the best cars of the day with the most stylish fashions. Geulah Korman was awarded an Order of Australia Medal in 1992 in recognition of her charity work.
