Due to the easing of COVID-19 restrictions,

 we are excited to announce the reopening of some of our key services and community facilities. Find out more in our COVID-19 services update.

Elsternwick Plaza

Elsternwick Plaza is located in the heart of the Elsternwick activity centre, next to Elsternwick train station, local shops and cafes. The modern plaza of today was redeveloped in 2016 to create green space within an urban setting. It is also the start of the historic Rosstown Rail Trail that runs from the plaza and along Riddell Parade.

How is COVID-19 impacting our parks?

For the continued good health of our community and as a measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 we will:


  • Not be accepting bookings for groups of more than 20 people (this will be reviewed on the 22nd June 2020).
  • Lawn bowls equipment at Packer Park will not be available for use.

Our playgrounds, outdoor gyms, skate park, netball courts, basketball hoops are now open and sportsgrounds are open to approved sports clubs. People should not gather in groups of more than 20, and stay 1.5 metres apart from others where possible.


Note: Playgrounds will now be included in Citywide’s Working for Victoria cleaning blitz which is funded by the State Government. We strongly encourage the community to still take their own precautions and practice safe hygiene. For further information on the cleaning blitz, visit Citywide's website.

Playground

The kids will love the transport-themed playground which includes:

  • a train
  • steam engine
  • bi-plane
  • spiral slide
  • climbing wall
  • stand-on spinner

Please note, there are no public toilets located within Elsternwick Plaza.

Book and reserve a picnic shelter

To apply online you will need to create an account or login. The cost to book a picnic shelter starts at $140.

The full booking fee payment is required within 48 hours of receipt of invoice.

You are required to email us proof of payment if your booking has been approved within 48 hours notice from your booking date.

Equipment such as marquees, jumping castles, petting zoos and BBQs are not permitted.

Please note:  A minimum notice of two business days is required for all bookings (subject to availability).

BBQs are a free communal facility for all users of the park. They are not included as part of a picnic shelter reservation.

Active Recreation

If you're a cyclist, you can follow the bike path (with its historic signage) right through to Boyd Park in the east of Glen Eira.

Dog leash information

Elsternwick Plaza is an on-leash area, which means you must keep your dog on-leash at all times.
