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.

I was a student at the school in the 1970s without this park. It's amazing what programs like this one do for the thousands of children in Malvern.

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!

A widely used area for both Malvern Primary students and their families, but all residents in the area. Having adequately grassed and irrigated grounds will encourage greater usage in conjunction with the local tennis and basketball courts and BBQ facilities all year round.

One of the most important things in a child's life is "play" and it saddens me to this area looking so badly neglected. Let's support this amazing project and ensure our kids and the community who use this area have a decent place to play!

This park is the heart of community that heavily uses the park. The grassed area has been in a poor state for at least the past 7 years (as long as my kids have been at Malvern Primary). Resurfacing the park will allow more children to play and increase the use of all the facilities.

Not only a school play area but a community play area for fun and sports use. Long overdue for a sprucing up with proper drainage and may I also suggest some benches so that parents, grandparents can watch their children or grandchildren play in safety.
