One of the great things about Australia is the great mix of amenities within its cities. From new cafes popping up in quirky places, to new apartments built in old warehouses, to a great little park within hidden suburbia.

Leckie Street Reserve is one such example. Sitting within a quiet suburban street in Bentleigh, it is quiet and unassuming - slotted between a block of houses - but in this way holds a special little ambience not unlike a vivid green patch of lawn within inner-city New York.

What's more, while a little park there is much to draw a family here for some fun. From a full size playground to picnic table - and situated under a shelter in case some very Melbourne rain comes to interrupt play - Leckie Street is a solid spot for a quick run around before school, or as a place to finish that suspended lunchtime game of tiggy before dinner.

Leckie Street Reserve: a blissful little park in Bentleigh.

Melbourne does have some fantastic playground spaces and it's good to see a house block being put to such good use in the neighbourhood. I can remember as a kid visiting Grandma in Malvern and the first thing we would do was rush to the public playground behind her house.
