Local amenity

Elwood College is surrounded by residential houses so parking and traffic is an important issue for residents and the Club.

  • We will develop an access map and parking guidelines.
  • All hirers, participants and spectators must treat our facility with appropriate respect and must be considerate of our neighbours when you arrive, while you are here and when you leave.

Parking – plan ahead

A dedicated car park for after school use will be available for 30 cars.

Overflow parking is on Glen Huntley Rd in front of the school.
