New management of Caulfield Racecourse Reserve

On Thursday 21 September 2017, the State Government passed legislation to establish a new, independent governing body for Caulfield Racecourse Reserve.

The passing of this legislation enables the 54 hectare parcel of Crown land to be managed more effectively and for the purposes that is was reserved for — recreation and a public park.

Glen Eira City Council has been advocating for a number of years to provide more opportunities for public recreation to cater for the needs of a growing population and is pleased with the long-awaited announcement.

We look forward to working with the trust, the State Government, Melbourne Racing Club and the local community to make the Reserve more accessible for everyone.
