Absolutely great park and area for local families. Kids love it, variety of physical activities for them and nice spots for families to gather for picnics. Interesting information on history around part of the perimeter. Visitors could visit this park to relax and just get a good feel of local family life at a handy park.

An amazing place for your kid to hang out with plenty of rides and sports space. Best attraction for summer is the water fountain…

Such a big park that there is something for everyone…

This is a great park.

I like to walk a few laps around it when I can.

You grab a coffee from DelMar cafe and have it in the park.

Wonderful park for kids to play.  Has a good place to jog or play footy and even plan for an evening gathering.

This is a wonderful park for the community, and it has some nice amenities.

Huge park in the middle of Melbourne, with a lot of facilities. Several open air swimming pools, an oval and soccer ground. Plus children playground and lot of open space. Great for walking and jogging.

linton broomhall

Beautiful park where you can walk your dog without a leash. The dog owners congregate in the centre for a social gathering with other dog owners and their canine companions. Excellently maintained by the City Council of Glen Eira. Cricket nets, as well as an automatic toilet. The flannelled fools play cricket on the green in the summer, while throughout the winter they participate in many games of soccer. a 0.9-kilometer walking route that circles the reserve, doggie bag dispensers, garden bench seating, and an undercover barbeque area with picnic tables and more bench seating are all included. A delightful way to spend a Sunday morning.

The Carnegie swimming centre is a wonderful old pool that was established in 1966 and is located on the east side of the building. Excellent for swimming laps and also equipped with a play splash lane. Grassy Banks pool in addition to two kid-friendly paddle pools. Have a picnic or some tea in the morning. Adult swimmers Lifeguards are on duty at the Carnegie Masters Swimming Club, which also offers swimming instruction for children.

Abhishek Deokar

Great place with large open area, a circle for games, multiple soccer pitches and a nice play area for the kids

Dale Martin

Great park, the sibling of Koornang park. It’s a rectangle the size of about 5-6 soccer grounds. The size makes it great for sports and socialising dogs, whichever level they’re at. Has a toilet, a number of water fountains and BBQ amenities. It’s well lit when there’s sport on, but otherwise is lacking around the walking track. It can also get swampy (doesn’t help it was built on a swamp!).

Shelley Henley

I have recently bought a house right opposite this park and it is a great location. 

Some observations :

Multiple playing pitches that are the size of soccer/cricket fields – (at least 5), surround by a walking/riding track

Further along the road there is an olympic sized swimming pool and a football ground.

Lots of supervised but mostly off leash dogs having a lovely time walking and playing, so too their owners

Lots of organised school games and practices during the day

Good use by teenagers and adults for organised games practices and also for weekend matches

Quite a bit of well placed seating on the edges for observers, or just a place for a nice sit down and read, with a coffee, or to enjoy a picnic.

And a very nice place to just lay around on the grass when it is not in complete use by sporty types.

Situated as I am, right over the road, I am most pleasantly surprised that the noise level is so very low. Almost a background sporty or park murmury sound. It has a real community feel about it and the type of noise that I hear just reinforces that. It sounds truly nice. It is a comfortable sort of noise.

Provides access to a wide variety of fun things to do. Includes a large area where your dog may run free without having to be on a leash. Excellent picnic areas with covered barbeque grills. Your children will have a blast playing on this magnificent playground, which features a wide variety of playsets. A velodrome of the highest calibre. Fields for bocci and lawn bowling are provided. There are cricket and golf nets, in addition to an oval where you can watch the weekend sports or just kick a football around on your own.

Lovely park 😄 not massive but it has 2 fields and a kids playground with a walking track around the outside. Great for a stroll in the sunlight while watching the dogs run around

Tina generoso

What a wonderful location to host a party for your children here! It is complete and comprehensive. Huge outdoor play area, a vast park to run around in, and be sure to bring your bike with you because the park features a fantastic velodrome that anyone can ride on. In addition to that, there is a spacious and tidy function space that may be rented out.

Matthew Smith

Love this place, watching the cyclists go round and round and round and round.

Has dog off leash area. Kids play area is one of the better ones as well. Grass on the oval is sublime

Laurence Fox

The velodrome was fantastic even for the child who was riding his bike, and the park as a whole was fantastic for children. Because of this, we were able to watch the local football game, and because the pavillion was open, we were also able to purchase a sausage and a cup of coffee. Everything is incredibly neat and orderly.

Adam G

This is a great local park with lots of established trees and lawns, and lots of shaded areas and many facilities including rotundas, BBQs, water fountain, clean toilets and litter bins. There’s also a kids playground, although small, it’s pretty good and quite entertaining for the little ones. It’s a great park to let your pooch out for a run.

Such a lovely park with many facilities- a bbq area, basketball court, batting cage, awesome play equipment and a big area with a pathway for walks with dogs (it’s off leash too!). This is my local park and I go there any chance I get with my puppy or with friends and family. Recommend!

A beautiful park for an evening stroll. There is a lake at the center which is very pretty. I really liked the fact that there is a portable public toilet which is very neat and clean. Almost 2 big soccer grounds and multiple small kids play area.

Highly recommend this place.

Rowan Wilde

I’ve been coming to Caulfield park since I can remember and it is always so lovely. It’s so big with so many different sections there’s always something to do it different to see.

From seeing new duckings, to a handful of playgrounds, good running track, basketball half court and good bike paths for the family Caulfield park is a fabulous place to spend a few hours.

Lil Miss Paris

Very beautiful place to be. Lots of space for children to play and family picnic as well. My daughter loved looking at the ducks and geese and played in the play ground. It’s very calm and relaxing and the sunset looks very beautiful.

Princess Sassy

Beautiful gardens, the birds and geese and ducks and pigeons and even the fish in the pond are all so massive! Place is peaceful and a good place to walk sit or picnic at. Very clean no rubbish left everywhere, toilets close by. Possums are friendly too.

Aron Steg

I don’t think I have ever noticed Caulfield Park looking so green and vibrant. It was a warm but not stinking-hot Sunday in March. There were people out in the sun reading books on the grass. There was a jazz band setting up on the band stand. The ducks 🦆 and geese were playing in the water. The bees 🐝 where buzzing around the flowers 🌷. What a site!


Princes Park in Caulfield

277 Bambra Rd, Caulfield South VIC 3162

Princes Park is one of the parks in Glen Eira that experiences the highest volume of foot traffic. Large play areas, vast open spaces, and a number of different sportsgrounds all contribute to the abundance of opportunities for play, physical activity, and relaxation that are available.

In 1923, a piece of the surrounding area started being referred to as Shilabeer’s Paddock by the locals. During that time period, this particular paddock was utilised as both a sandpit and a waste dump. The land was eventually developed into a park with an area of about 10 hectares, and this was the beginning of what we now refer to as Princes Park.

Marco Celon

A park that is well maintained and has paths that can be used for walking and running. The weekends are always packed with a variety of different club sports competitions.

Margot Sims

I was one of roughly 80 people who attended the debate there. Access for people using wheelchairs is not difficult, and there is parking nearby. Because there is a kitchen available, it is quite simple to provide refreshments to guests. Additionally, there is a compact vestibule that makes it simple to register participants, collect admission costs, and conduct raffle sales.

Vesna S

Highly recommended. The park I was attending twice a day before I moved to a new suburb…. Still going there occasionally

Carla Khoo

What great park! Super fun play area, with loads of safe green luscious grass to run and play on. We held a birthday here, no bookings needed, and it was GREAT! 😁

Google Reviews for East Caulfield Reserve – Park in Caulfield


Beautiful place to take an evening stroll, play soccer, football, or basketball, and it’s just near to the campus of Monash University in Caulfield.

Additionally, there is soccer played on artificial turf, which requires both a payment and the booking of a court in order to participate. In general, it’s a good location to stay, and it’s very close to the station.

Chris Kalikas

Love to get out here, jog, and get some exercise; isn’t it possible that that circus clown Andrews would soon forbid us Victoria residents from going outside to get some fresh air? This is the mess that has been left for Victoria as a direct result of the fool who is claiming to rule our state. Please, someone, fire Andrews. Thanks. Thank you very much, Chris, a proud Victorian.


This reserve, along with the vast majority of the parks and reserves in Glen Eira, is kept in pristine condition. Featuring first-rate athletic fields (parking is available off Sir John Monash drive), as well as a marvellously shaded children’s play area (parking on Dudley st off Princes Hwy). In addition, the oval is a fantastic venue for sporting events.


Good facilities

The East Caulfield Reserve is home to both adult athletic facilities (including a pavillion), as well as a playground for younger visitors. There is a place for dogs to run free without leashes, as well as barbeque grills, picnic tables with seating, public restrooms, grassy areas, and trees that provide shade.

ashlin dias

Johnny Van Greune

A pleasant and spotless park with a variety of first-rate amenities.

This park is where I go to get my daily workout every time we go to Australia.

Coming all the way from South Africa, it is a delight to use such a well-kept and secure park.


Sarah Hayman

Wonderful for a day trip or even a party setting. My son had his first birthday here, and there is a little undercover table area with a barbeque that is suitable for a large gathering of people. Incredible amenities, and your peace of mind will be preserved thanks to the enclosed and gated space for your children to run around in. Excellent for older kids as well as younger children.

andrew westerbeek

Enjoyed it. My older kids we quickly bored but the younger kids loved the playground. They had toilets,a BBQ and shelter. The park was large and nicely maintained. there was lots of seating and shade too

Warren Hetherington

One of the parks that I enjoy visiting the most. Always a large number of other children available for my children to play with. Amenities are beneficial to have. The rotunda is a popular place for birthday celebrations, and as a result, reservations are required. A few years ago, we held our daughter’s birthday party there. The summertime food truck events are an absolute necessity to attend.

Lisa Singer

Large and spotless paek. There are no baby swings or play options, but the range is good for toddlers and older children. Restrooms that are open to the public. There is covered dining as well as a number of public barbeque grills. Ring for basketball and an open oval of a decent size. Plenty of shady spaces beneath the trees.
