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

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...

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 was a Springvale/Springvale South resident for over 40 years and was privileged enough to know the Maurice Kirby family directly. I didn't know Maurice, but I knew him through his television and greyhound associations. The fact that he was honoured with having this velodrome named after him speaks enormous amounts about his association with this tight knit community. Council should be seen to be doing the right thing by revitalizing the velodrome, not removing it!

the children need space to play and socialise with other children i used to ride on the that velodrome when i was a kid. back then we had big backyards, today what have the children got. make more parks for the children, if you want to ride you bike there are other alternatives where you can ride.

Would love a bigger joint facility for the tennis club and sportijg clubs using the oval. More carparking is a must. A running/ cycling track in the park with fitness stations would be amazing. Removal of the now very aged bike track and more shaded areas overlooking sports ground and tennis courts would be great.

I would like to see this plan go ahead with the only change keeping the old pavilion as an extra community space.
The Velodrome desperately needs to be removed. As much as it has offered an are for cyclists in the passed, now it is only used by walkers and even so has deteriorated to the state that it needs to be ripped up.
The Councils plan to flatten it and create more space for sports like Cricket and Soccer to take place will be very beneficial to the local community and sporting groups that use the facility.
As stated above, if some of the car parking was sacrificed to keep the current P...

Resurface or rebuild the velodrome. Council can not just destroy it on a whim and erase Maurice Kirby's cycling legacy forever.

Maurice supported all sports, including soccer as well. I don't think him nor his family would be happy to find out the council only has preferences for one sport.
