East Caulfield Reserve

East Caulfield Reserve is a picturesque tree-lined reserve situated in close proximity to Monash University, Caulfield Train station and the Djerring Trail.

The presence of trees not only enhances the natural beauty of the reserve but also provides shade and a sense of tranquility for visitors. This combination of greenery, accessibility, and amenities makes it a popular destination for leisure activities, picnics, and outdoor exercise.

Court one at East Caulfield Reserve is temporarily closed for community use.

This is because the court surface is damaged and has deteriorated faster than anticipated in recent months due to increased rain and it poses a health and safety risk to users in its current state. 


It will reopen to the community on 15 May, after our contractors install a new court surface. 


Thank you for your patience during these works.  


The timber playground includes:

  • slides
  • climbing ropes
  • monkey bar rings
  • orbit spinner
  • swings
  • bird swing
