The playground is overlooked by large established trees, picnic tables and barbecues and a toilet block, meaning it caters well for all-day play.

Note that the playground is SO large that it can be hard to keep track of kids who like to want to run off in different directions. It is unfenced so you’ll need to keep your wits about you.

The two other Caulfield Park playgrounds are better suited for toddlers. The Aviary Garden play area is accessed off Inkerman Road and it is shaded with soft fall flooring, picnic and barbecue facilities and toilets.

The Central-West play area is near the Croquet Club and is the smallest playground in Caulfield Park. It has barbecues and seats but toilet facilities are a bit further away.

All the playgrounds have ample off-street parking.

  1. I would like to visit Caulfield Park next time. It will be my kids next destination since we just live north. I’ve heard so many beautiful things about this park. Thank to this great blog!

  2. This beautiful park would be wonderful if it were not for the dog poo that litters playing fields and other off-leash areas. Bags are provided, but so many dog owners do not pick up.
