Work will shortly start on stage two of the Toorak Park and Victory Square masterplan which, among other things, will see huge improvements to the aged cricket practice facilities on Toorak Park.

Stage one of the masterplan, a new playground and park improvements on Victory Square, will be completed by the end of the month.

This next stage will deliver much-needed improvements including the construction and installation of new:

  • cricket practice facilities
  • public toilets
  • storage facilities
  • lighting
  • irrigation, and
  • paths to link the practice area to Toorak Park and Victory Square.

To complement the works, obsolete lighting and an old communications tower will be removed, and extra garden beds created.

The area impacted by these stage two works is the part of Toorak Park around the old cricket practice nets, near Potter and Aubrey streets.

To complete the stage five trees will be removed from the corner of Aubrey and Fulton streets, which will be offset by the planting 17 new trees and more than 420 shrubs, groundcovers and grasses.

Some pedestrian and vehicle access will be impacted during construction, and Council’s contractor, 2Construct, will be making every effort to keep the disruption to a minimum.

The stage two works are expected to be ready for use in mid-2020.

The Toorak Park and Victory Square masterplan(PDF, 6MB) was adopted by Council in June 2018 after an extensive two-stage community consultation program.
