Cricket returns to the Junction Oval


On Sunday 8th April 2018, Cricket Victoria and Proud2Play will host Proud Cricket Day at Junction Oval. The day is all about celebrating the great work that has been done to date to ensure cricket remains inclusive for all communities, including the LGBTI+ community.  There will be a host of fun activities throughout the day including a social Cricket round robin, activations from Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades including a Playcricket zone, face painting, giveaways and much more. JOY FM will also be broadcasting live on the day, and providing great music for all to enjoy.

P1100532The new beautifully grassed, white picket fenced oval, flanked by the fully restored historic Blackie Ironmonger Stand and the new northern complex is home to the redeveloped Victoria Cricket & Community Centre. With state of the art indoor artificial wickets, gym area, swimming pool, entertaining areas, small grandstand, electronic scoreboard and change rooms it is a major new asset St Kilda residents should make sure they inspect and will surely become proud of.  Entry is FREE to many local cricket games (Men’s & Women’s) with some exception of larger events. Event space can be hired/ catered for and rental of indoor practice pitches are available for rent as well.  For more information go to the website http://www.cricketvictoria.com.au/about/vccc

HAVE YOUR SAY: Upgrade to Chipton Park (formerly Crimea Reserve)

The very popular Chipton Park in Crimea Street on the corner with Charnwood Road has been earmarked for a makeover with new and improved playground equipment and facilities.  Chipton Park is the only one of its kind in the entire local area and as such is a highly prized asset that needs to fully respond to the current and future needs of residents, especially those with young children.

New Concept Design

Chipton Reserve_Concept Plan

The Concept Design has just been released, and now this is your one chance to Have Your Say as to how well it meets your needs and the wider community’s expectations for a boutique, quiet and friendly park.  Does the park:

JAAG committee encourages JAAG members to participate in the Council online survey which is open now until 11th April, 2018   http://haveyoursay.portphillip.vic.gov.au.


The park was established in the 1960’s at a time when very few children/infants lived in the area. Around 2000 the park was upgraded with new children’s playground equipment and gardens renovated with new plantings. With the sustained increase in recent years of young families with children/infants coming to live close by and many more people now choosing to live in the precinct, this pocket park is failing to meet their needs as park users, is way off creating a positive impact on the streetscape.

Chipton Park is named after the house originally on the site, where Harry Browse Gibbs lived. Mr Gibbs was a former Mayor if St Kilda (1902) as well as a well-known architect who designed many of the iconic buildings in St Kilda and surrounds. Descendants of Mr Gibbs requested the park name be changed from Crimea Reserve to Chipton Park and this was approved in February 2017.

 St Kilda Junction PTV Substation

72% of respondents to the design survey preferred Option 1 – ‘Future Forest’.  The ‘Lighthouse’ and ‘Timeline’ options received 13% and 15% respectively.  Much of the feedback indicated people liked that the preferred option (pictured below) blended in to the local area and with other vegetation and provided the best outcome in preventing grafitti.

St Kilda Junction Substation - Architectural Options

The next stage is to tender the detail design and implementation of the final concept design choice. PTV anticipate that the substation including the exterior detail will be completed and landscaped by DECEMBER 2018.  Below is the link to Transport Vic’s updated project page on the St Kilda Junction substation site.
