Aspendale is separated by the Nepean Highway and the Frankston line. On the beach side of the highway, there is more medium density development, and land prices are much higher. Some larger blocks with older houses remain in this area, although many of these larger blocks have been subdivided into flats and units. On the other side of the Nepean Highway, housing is typically low-density, and land values are lower. On the Eastern boundary of Aspendale a cycling and running track runs through to Mordialloc.
