As a cyclist, I am very dissapointed that the Maurice Kirby velodrome at Parkfield Reserve is being dismantled. This will now mean cyclists will have to cycle on dangerous roads, often without segregated cycle lanes, to velodromes outside of the City of Greater Dandenong boundaries to be able to cycle recreationally. Other councils in Melbourne are able to maintain their cycling velodromes and facilities (see Hawthorn Velodrome recent upgrades) yet the City of Greater Dandenong can not cater for recreational cyclists at all?

This is a total loss for the cycling community in the region. There are ...

As he was my Father I'm bitterly disappointed that Dads ideas for kids of yester year had something to do and an interest in Cycling to keep them of the streets as well as being an old identity of Noble Park his work and achievements now mean Nothing. Gayle

Do not remove the Velodrome. Have you seen the results Australian cyclists are achieving all over the world.
Those that choose to train on the track have the right to do so rather than being killed on your roads

My top priority is ensuring the tennis facilities encourage more junior players to join. I am concerned at the placement of seating for viewing tennis. There are many people who watch tennis matches, particularly parents of junior players, given the number of junior members who currently play at the tennis club. The seating you have on the map currently are placed on the west side of the courts (i.e. between the tennis courts and the oval), however this places the seats behind the wind breakers that need to be attached to the fence to stop the court sand from being blown away. These wind breakers can...

I have spent a considerable amount of time at Parkfield reserve . I grew up at the park playing sports, working and enjoying a great piece of land in the noble park community. I had many school mates that also attended the facility for cricket and football and tennis . This reserve has been under developed for many years with tired facilities . The scout hall in the sth west corner does it even get used anymore? The Maurice Kirby Velodrome once many years ago had a thriving cycle club ( cricket balls in summer would cause havoc as they ran up the asphalt in the way of cyclists ( an OHS disaster waiti...

Please do not demolish this local velodrome. It is a great location for all cyclists to safely ride, away from the open roads. Children also love to ride laps and try to race each other and overall, the velodrome brings the community together - not just the cycling community but everybody.

Removing the Maurice Kirby velodrome would be a great loss to the community. Not only is it a safe and fun environment for people to stay fit and healthy, but it’s also an ideal training location for competitive cyclists.
Velodromes provide families with a carless environment in which parents can ride along with the kids without worrying about drivers endangering them. Shared cycle paths are often dangerous due to pedestrians and their pets.
Many riders of varying levels still use this velodrome regularly, from those who ride just for fitness, right through to those who represent Australia in i...

This is a great idea for the local community and children. I currently work in the youth justice system in this area and live in the area, I would love to see this development go ahead. I have spoken with the local cricket and soccer clubs and they are losing juniors due to poor facilities. If the facilities were upgraded, children and teens could get more involved within these club and prevent them from roaming the streets and committing crime and coming through my doors. We need facilities like this to involve the younger generation in a positive way within the local community.

I think this is a great idea. My cousins are member of the junior team however due to insufficient facilities they need to train at other locations. If these facilities were to be built it would mean the world to the children that participate and would allow the children and parents to be able to get involved with the club and the local community.

My top three priorities are building two new soccer pitches, getting rid of the velodrome and building a new pavilion.
