Cranbourne Dairy & Dairy Park In 1934 William and Mabel Rose purchased land on the west side of Darling Road adjoining Rothesay Avenue and erected a new dairy and home for their Cranbourne Dairy. The business had moved from Preston to Craigmore Street East Malvern in 1930. The business was sold to Richard Dixon in 1939. The dairy operated until the late 1970s and the site was sold in 1981. The buildings were demolished in 1988 and a park was established on the site by the City of Malvern. The land and the cost of development came from Arterial Road Link compensation funds.Dairy Park was opened on the old dairy site on 26 November 1989.Stonnington History CentrePhoto - Eleanor Joy Lindsay ...
