When it comes to great little parks, Bentleigh is fortunate to hold more than a few. Yet, while big and grand open expanses are fantastic for playing with your dog or kicking a football around, so too are the smaller parks like Dega Avenue and Leckie Street Reserve fantastic for a quieter day of play.
Just as Leckie Street a couple of blocks away has its own drawcards - and the nearby shopping centres surely boast some great cafes and places for lunch - Dega Avenue offers something unique to recommend a visit by those keen to conquer a playground.
For kids, alongside a swing, seesaw, rocking toys and more, there is also a solid patch of grass for practising those hard-to-master handstands, as well as a lunch table for refuelling before getting in another game of tiggy.
"The park has a great mix of sunshine, shade, and security"
For mums and dads it can be said: the park has a great mix of sunshine, shade, and security. This is ideal for anyone with kids who needs to get outdoors but not get burnt, and wonderfully energetic but also now very quick on their feet, with the fence providing a good safety barrier between the park and the surrounding street.
All up and across the board, Dega Avenue Reserve promises an abundance of fun for any who call by for an after-school or weekend visit.
