Come and take a quick run through one of Melbourne’s great running locations: Dendy Park
The Stride welcomes you to Dendy Park, located in Melbourne’s south eastern suburb of Brighton. Dendy park plays host to many sporting activities with the main being athletics, soccer and tennis. Along the track you will see professional running groups completing pre and in season training, the occasion AFL footballer and families on their morning stroll. The grounds provide a 2.2km perimeter track that is predominately flat, as well as a grass athletics field located on the north side. Do keep in mind that during the winter months the track can become heavy underfoot, so a change of socks and shoes is not always a bad idea. When finishing your session Dendy or Church street is where you will find the Brighton cafes. Most of these cafes are particularly busy on weekends, and this trend seems to last all year round. We don’t have a favourite cafe however, if you’re the indecisive type, Brighton School house is a safe and good choice for a post training meal and coffee. Stride on!
