Calder Park is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 22 km north-west of Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the City of Brimbank.

Wedged between the Calder Freeway, and the Bendigo railway line, Calder Park has no residential dwellings within its bounds, with the only structure being a chapel situated adjacent to the Calder Park Raceway. This is located in the northern half of the suburb, with the southern half comprising open fields, adjoining neighboring Taylors Lakes.

The land located between the raceway and Taylors Lakes is zoned for future industrial use and is shown in some maps as a future industrial estate. Development type is restricted due to its proximity to Melbourne Airport and its planned future second runway project alignment.
