Toorak Park

Toorak Park is a cricket and Australian rules football arena located in the Melbourne suburb of Armadale, Australia. It is the home ground of the Prahran Football Club & Old Xaverians Football Club of the VAFA and Prahran Cricket Club, which plays in the Victorian Premier Cricket competition. The capacity of the venue is 15,000.

Toorak Park opened in 1893 when it was used by Hawksburn Cricket Club (later Prahran) Prahran Football Club began playing there in 1899. When Prahran went into recess after the 1994 season, Old Xaverians moved there for the 1995 season and now share the oval with Prahran.
