As part of the State Government’s $154 million Suburban Parks Program, Council has been successful in securing $2.6 million in funding for the construction of two new pocket parks.
The Draft Land Management Plan outlines the proposed initiatives that will help Caulfield Racecourse Reserve realise its vision and truly create a place for everyone. It reflects what it has heard from the community and stakeholders and is bold in both its vision and its aspiration.
Some of the key initiatives outlined in the plan include:
- A new sports hub featuring turf and synthetic sports fields, stadium/community facility, club room, change facilities and cafe.
- Easier access to the Reserve's vast open space with two new tunnels and improved access points for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists to enter.
- A walking/running/cycling trail around the perimeter of the Reserve.
- Brand new community and event spaces that can cater to different scales.
- Family friendly spaces including a community garden and nature-based play to engage children.
- Digital technology including digital signage, Wi-Fi connectivity throughout and platforms to share experiences and access information.
The Draft Land Management Plan is open for community consultation until Friday 14 August.
