Victory Park is a premium football park in Bentleigh. With crisp green lawn lawns, strong white goal posts, and ample space in its surrounds, it is an idyllic place to visit for a go at the Beautiful Game.
True, the pitch may not quite rival AAMI stadium in terms of pitch perfection - there is a rubber cricket mound in the middle after all - but for an evening practice or Saturday kickaround with friends there are few better pitches nearby that are otherwise so well-maintained, accessible, and scenic.
What's more, alongside the main field there is ample seating on the side, a second pitch off to the left (also usable for cricket with a pitch in the midst), as well as batting cages, a tennis court, and small playground in the wider surrounds. So, though the main draw may be for some green grass gaming, there is a generous abundance of amenities to wile the hours away.

Victory Park is also in close proximity to many other wonderful attractions around Bentleigh. From bike trails (with a full service bike repair station) and grand parks just a quick drive down the road, to wonderful cafes just a short walk down the road - and a scattering of quiet and lesser known parks around wider Bentleigh - Victory Park is a great place to use a starting point for a whole fun-filled weekend afternoon of fun and games in Melbourne.
