Clapperton Street Park was established in the 1950’s by the former City of Moorabbin, adding to the much needed open space within Bentleigh. 


The play space expands nearly the entire park and includes:

  • swings
  • climbing elements
  • seesaw springer
  • fireman's pole
  • slide

Picnic shelter

The playground is separated from the street by a shelter with a picnic table and drink fountain. This allows for both socialisation and relaxation opportunities.

Dog leash information

Clapperton Street Park is an on-leash area, which means you must keep your dog on leash at all times.
