UPDATE INFO >

Toorak Park opened in 1893 and is most well known as home of the Prahran Football Club who played in the VFA. The Two Blues called the ground home between 1899 and when they departed the league in 1994. These days, the Armadale ground is home of the Old Xaverians and Prahran who both play in the VAFA and the Prahran Cricket Club who play in the Victorian Premier Cricket competition.

The ground includes a grandstand with seating for about 500, undercover terracing on the wing and a nice hill surrounding it. Four tall light towers provide reasonable lighting for the ground however new lights are due to be installed in late 2013, enabling the ground to host night football and cricket.

A main feature of Toorak Park is its video scoreboard. Installed in early 2013, the $200,000 board is one of the best at any local ground in Melbourne. Also on the outer wing is the old scoreboard, which was capable of full cricket scores but is now obsolete.

The old ground played host to four VFA Grand Finals between 1935 and 1938, the last of which attracted approximately 17,000 fans for the clash between Brunswick and Brighton the record crowd for the venue. It also hosted the VFA division two Grand Finals when it existed and has hosted 13 VFL matches including St Kilda home games and one South Melbourne home game in the 1940s.
