Hampton Park

Hampton Park is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 36 km south-east of Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the City of Casey. At the 2011 Census, Hampton Park had a population of 23,767. Hampton Park is bounded by the South Gippsland Freeway in the west, Centre Road in the north, a line generally parallel to Langbourne Drive in the east, and Glasscocks Road in the south. The original development of Hampton Park dates from the post World War I era, when the area around Somerville Road was subdivided, with the Post Office opening on 22 November 1920. Significant development of the area commenced in the 1970s, with development continuing through to the present. Development in the neighbouring Lynbrook estate commenced in 1994. The Hampton Park and Lynbrook areas have significant areas of land remaining for development.

Hampton Park, Lynbrook and Lyndhurst form a growing residential area that has experienced a significant increase in population from 1996 to 2001. This increase in population has occurred due to an increase in the dwelling stock from 1996 to 2001. 

The nearest railway station is Lynbrook and Hallam railway station on the Cranbourne railway line and Pakenham line respectively. Buses operate regularly to Hallam station. One of the buses (891) travels from Lynbrook railway station to Hallam railway station to Westfield Fountain Gate.

Hampton Park has its own library, community hall, high school called Hampton Park Secondary College, and several primary schools. There is a local supermarket complex called Hampton Park Central (previously Hampton Park Shopping Square), and it is close to the much larger Westfield Fountain Gate in Narre Warren.

The town has an Australian Rules football team competing in the Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League. The football ground is located at Robert Booth Reserve along with Hampton Park Tennis Club
