Penpraze Park is an essential outdoor space for locals to enjoy, and for the students of Malvern Primary School to access. The parks current surface is pitted and rutted. There are areas where grass cover is devoid and the surface is hollowing out and becoming dangerously uneven. This project will rectify major issues by providing new grass, significant leveling, drainage systems, automated irrigation and maintenance. Locals will have an improved outdoor space for their enjoyment and physical activity. The park is also an essential physical activity resource for the school, which it is becoming increasingly reliant upon as enrolments increase.

Penpraze Park provides valuable open space for the City of Stonnington, which has an average of only 20sqm of public open space per person, the second lowest of any Victorian municipality. As the population increases, the new and enhanced park facilities will improve sport and recreation opportunities for the local community, and for Malvern Primary School. Upgrades will provide for essential community connectedness and encourage increased physical activity. It will also ensure the park can continue to support Malvern Primary school to deliver a comprehensive sport and physical education curriculum, passive recreation facilities and nature play opportunities for its students.

This space is used by the community and school and desperately needs some attention to make it a space more enjoyable to use than a dirt patch.

Watching children trying to play in the mud on wet days and a dust bowl in hot weather is not a pleasant experience.

This is a fabulous park that we frequent often however this area is desperate need of attention. I say this as my child has recently sprained their ankle due to the rough and uneven surface. Our fingers are crossed in hopes that this project gets picked.

This park is in desperate need of attention! It is used daily by the schoolchildren and after hours and weekends by local families. It is a great way to encourage community interaction and physical activity.

With an increasing number of apartments being built in the area, open space parkland is more important than ever to provide the opportunity for outdoor recreation

It would benefit all the children at the school and the children who play there during out of school hours !

This area located within Malvern Primary School and used by school kids every day as well as local families during weekend and after school. Can't imagine any park has provided higher usage than this! Money spent on this project will be well worth every cent.

Our 13 year old son and his mates use this park regularly and really appreciated the upgrade of the basketball area when it was completed a few years ago. They also love to play a bit of soccer there on weekends but the during last winter the condition of the park resulted in it being just a muddy paddock.
On the occasions I have been at the park, I was always surprised at the number of people using the tennis & basketball courts and all the family groups enjoying the area.
The resurfacing will be welcomed by the whole community, particularly the Primary school students.

This park is an asset to Malvern Primary School and the wider community , an upgrade would definitely help support and embrace happier , healthy kids . It is as much a safety issue as a great outdoor venue for all to use.

Very badly needed. One of the big concerns is how the uneven surface could cause injury to the kids playing on it.
