Glen Eira’s reputation as a prized family location has been boosted with the opening of a state-of-the-art new campus at McKinnon Secondary College, supporting growing demand with capacity for 1000 extra students. Glen Eira College will also receive a $6.5 million upgrade to expand capacity by 2024.

A series of playground redevelopments, including recent renewal works at the popular Princes Park Playspace in Caulfield South, and the imminent redevelopment of Centenary Park Playground in East Bentleigh, will further enhance the area’s family friendly amenity.

The hotly anticipated $52 million redevelopment of Carnegie Memorial Swimming Pool is underway, promising a modern, accessible recreation centre for the Glen Eira community. When completed in mid-2024, the new centre will include a 50m outdoor pool, diving pool, warm-water indoor pool, spa, sauna and steam rooms.
