Traffic and Parking for Competitions
At Fawkner Park, parking is at an absolute premium, and while parking around Fawkner Park is free, parking spaces are limited. With the Hospital across the road, and parking in residental streets is used by hospital visitors, park users as well as the residents themselves.
A few tips to help alleviate parking stress:
- Consider parking at the Toorak Road side of Fawkner Park. It is a short walk to the Touch Football fields from there, and you will be more likely to find a park.
- Consider carpooling with team mates if possible. Less cars per team equals less stress.
- Coming in from the city? Leave your car where it is and catch the Tram! Tram route 72 travels along Commercial Road, tram Route 58 travels along Toorak Road. And if you catch a tram along St Kilda Road, hop off at Stop 24 (Leopold St) and it's a short walk to the touch fields from there!
