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.

Lovely Park to walk dogs off leash. Dog owners meet in the middle for a chat to socialise with other dog owners and dogs. Well maintained by Glen Eira City Council. Automatic toilet, cricket nets. Cricket on the green during summer by the flannelled fools and multiple games of soccer during the winter. 0.9km walking path around the reserve, doggy bag dispensers, bench garden seating and also an undercover BBQ facility with picnic tables and bench seating. Lovely stroll on a Sunday morning.

On the east side is the Carnegie swimming centre which is the lovely old pool built in 1966. Ideal for lap swimming and also has a play splash Lane. Grassy Banks pool and two paddle pools for kids. Take a picnic or morning tea. Adult swimmers Carnegie Masters Swimming club and swimming lessons for kids lifeguard on duty.

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.

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

Fantastic Park for the kids and the Velodrome was amazing even for the little one on his bike. The local football was on so we were able to watch and the pavilion we open so we were able to get a sausage and a coffee. All very clean and tidy.

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

Princes Park is one of Glen Eira’s most popular parks. Multiple sportsgrounds, vast open spaces and significant play spaces all provide opportunities for play, exercise and relaxation.

In 1923 part of the local area became known as Shilabeer’s Paddock, which acted as a sandpit and refuse disposal area. It was later developed into around 10 hectares of parkland – the origins of what we now call Princes Park.
