The Wedge, Caulfield East

We are currently preparing detailed design of the new dog park planned for Caulfield East, adjacent to Caulfield Racecourse, following community consultation undertaken late 2017.

Known as ‘The Wedge’, the land is currently managed by State Government, but Council will be appointed land manager in the near future. It is located at the eastern end of Glen Eira Road, adjacent to the Caulfield Racecourse Reserve vehicle tunnel entrance.

This type of facility would be the first dog specific area in Glen Eira and will provide owners with the opportunity to train their pets in a fully-fenced and structured environment — something the community has been asking for.

Key elements of the design include:

  • a dog agility training area
  • a small dog area
  • an off-leash run and play area
  • an off-leash rock scramble area (a sensory zone with garden beds, a dry creek bed and rocks and logs)

The concept images on this page provide a visual explanation of the design intent and ideas. Further site specific design work will be undertaken to incorporate site conditions, landscape features and existing vegetation.
