Prahran Square

Stonnington’s Prahran Square has become a haven for residents and workers looking for a break, some exercise or a quick bite to eat.

South Ward Councillor Melina Sehr said she had noticed an increase in people exercising in the open space.

"It’s fascinating seeing how people respond to Prahran Square in their own ways, which was an important part of our thinking when Council committed to transforming a run down open air car park into a flexible open air space," she said.

"It’s great seeing people using the terraced steps for cardio and the lawn area for yoga, but it’s just as heartening to see residents and workers using the different areas to enjoy their lunch break or meet friends."

Cr Sehr said the Square was also a firm favourite for dog owners. "Local pet parents are making a swing through Prahran Square part of their daily walking round," she said.

"The beautiful winter afternoons have offered an additional benefit to the space, providing a perfect relaxed option."

There is plenty in store for Prahran Square when restrictions ease. In the meantime, why not add it to your workout route and see for yourself?
