Sportsground lighting 

Did you know in 2019, Council endorsed the ‘lighting up open space’ initiative which sees some of our sportsgrounds being lit up for night-time use outside of sports clubs allocations. This initiative lights up the below sportsgrounds during the months of April through to October.

Park Oval location Days and times
Caulfield Park Oval 2 — Oval near the pavilion on Inkerman Road side Monday to Friday, 5pm to 9pm
Availability may be impacted by casual bookings.
EE Gunn Reserve Eastern oval — baseball side Monday to Thursday, 8pm to 9pm
Friday, 5pm to 9pm
Hodgson Reserve Higgins Road oval Monday to Friday, 5pm to 9pm

Although we are unable to light up all our sporting ovals, we hope this initiative helps provide some night-time exercise for you during the darker periods.

The upgrade and maintenance of sportsground lighting is undertaken as per the sportsground lighting policy.
