Annie and Arthur Abrahams Reserve

Annie and Arthur Abrahams Reserve sits within a beautifully landscaped neighbourhood in Bentleigh East. Annie and Arthur Abrahams Reserve was once the site of a factory owned and used by Rayon and Silk Printers. The company's factory was sold in the 1990's, at which time an agreement between Council and the owners saw a portion of land transferred to Council on the basis it was maintained as a reserve.

How is COVID-19 impacting our parks?

For the continued good health of our community and as a measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 we have:

  • closed all playgrounds and outdoor fitness equipment
  • turned off drinking fountains and barbecues
  • closed all sportsgrounds to all sports clubs
  • suspended bookings for our venues, parks or reserves until further notice.
The Australian Government has announced new limits on all non-essential gatherings — you can only go out for personal exercise in our parks on your own or with one other person.

Playground

The playground facilities at Annie and Arthur Abrahams Reserve are brightly coloured and adventurous.

The playground features:

  • rope climbing frame
  • slides
  • swings (and an all abilities swing)
  • puzzle panels

Picnic shelter and BBQ

A picnic shelter with two picnic tables and a BBQ facility are a great location for social gatherings as well as providing some protection from the elements.
