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.

Thank you for your wonderful vote! This is the last week to get our votes in. Has everyone over 16 in your house, your neighbours and family voted? If not, now would be the perfect time to remind them to vote. Thank you again!

So sad that the Malvern Primary children have to play in a dirt bowl currently.

This needs doing .
One of the worst school ovals I have seen. Most probable cause is over use.
This is used during the day by school kids and evening and weekends by the public.

Let’s get it fixed so we can all continue to enjoy this space.

Penpraze Park is a frequently used public open space that needs investment to improve it’s amenity and safety. This project will benefit 600 school children who use this space daily during the school year and the local residents who live in this neighbourhood. As both a local resident and a member of the Malvern Primary School community I am in full support of this project.

Penpraze Park is in a terrible state, and is desperate need of resurfacing. Is is so uneven and dangerous, and is a constant safety hazard to the hundreds of MPS students that play there daily - as well as those in the wider community that visit on the weekends, including many families. How can we best educate our children around showing respect for their environment, when this community area has been let go to ruin? Not a good example for the next generation! Please fix Penpraze Park asap.

Can't happen too soon. I feel sorry for the kids having to play on such a terrible surface - dusty in summer, muddy in winter. Not to mention the aesthetics - looks dreadful.

This is a frequently used area that has suffered from the red tape of being partly owned by several different government bodies. Don't let the vicissitudes of bureaucracy disadvantage the children and young people who make use of this space. Re-surfacing is a must.
