Halley Park is one of those beautiful little parks in Bentleigh that serves as a testament to the adage 'A picture is worth a thousand words'.
With a full-sized playground, an abundance of green space, a basketball court, and even an outdoor gym/exercise centre, the Park serves as a great local community spot that holds something for everyone.
To be clear, this is one of those great places where it is very hard to get bored if you are young and full of energy. It is also great for a repeat visit - as if you find the kids growing a bit too big to use the playground safely - there are plenty of other amenities in the park to entertain and amuse.
True, it should be noted, at times this can be a bit of a balancing act depending on when you come to the Park, as the open green field does allow for dogs off-leash that can put a bit of a damper on aspirations for a quick game of soccer or cricket.
Save for this slight logistical snafu though, Halley Park is otherwise a wonderful destination to get along to whether you seek a turn on the swing, a 3 point shot on the basketball court, or maybe even a chance to break your record for pull ups on the outdoor gym.
