Press Release | 27 September 2017
Council is seeking community feedback on plans to improve Toorak Park and Victory Square in Armadale.
Toorak Park is Stonnington’s flagship sporting reserve and is used for Premier Cricket and VAFA Australian rules football. Together with the adjoining Victory Square the area is also an important recreational space for residents and visitors.
Council has produced a series of plans identifying opportunities to address issues related to access and circulation, boundaries, parking and interfaces, landscape and vegetation, park aesthetics and sporting uses. These plans are publicly available to inform and seek feedback from the community.
City of Stonnington Mayor Cr Jami Klisaris invited the community to have their say on the issues and opportunities identified for Toorak Park and Victory Square to help us prepare a new masterplan for the park.
“An outcome from the review will be to find a balance between the growing needs of our sporting clubs, and ensuring residents and visitors have access to functional public open space.”
“Toorak Park and Victory Square currently do not meet the collective needs of sporting clubs or the community so Council is seeking feedback to assist with identifying improvements to sporting amenities, park facilities, play spaces, vegetation and off-lead areas for dogs.”
“We have consulted with sporting clubs and organisations who use Toorak Park and Victory Square and are now seeking feedback from the community on our plans which are available to review online,” said Cr Klisaris.
A community survey is available through Connect Stonnington, Council’s online engagement platform, from Monday 9 October until Sunday 29 October and on site drop-in sessions will be held on:
- Monday 9 October: 6pm – 7.30pm at Victory Square
- Sunday 15 October 2017: 2pm – 3.30pm at Toorak Park
- Thursday 26 October 2017: 6pm – 7.30pm at Toorak Park
