Relocation of horse training by 2023 would free up 23ha of open space for public use

A Tan-style running track around Caulfield Racecourse has firmed as part of a massive overhaul aimed at creating more public space.

The track, encircling the 54ha racecourse reserve, would be available even on race days.

It would be about 5km and accessible at any point from surrounding streets.

Caulfield Racecourse Reserve Trust general manager Andrew Paxton, whose organisation manages the site, said the relocation of horse training by 2023 would free up 23ha of open space for public use.

“It provides a great opportunity to reimagine the future of the reserve,” Mr Paxton said.

“The demand for open space is only going to get greater.

“We do not want to create what already exists in the area.

“It’s finding a point of difference.

“It’s a very exciting time.”
