[ADVERT]The mere mention of Chancellor Park is synonymous with your typical suburbia - tree-lined streets, children zipping around on their bikes and scooters, Dad outside mowing the lawn and Mum inside catching up on the chores. But you may be surprised to learn that Chancellor Park has more to it than your typical suburban scenery.

The estate itself has been carefully master- planned around six lakes, which have become the recreational centrepiece for the development. The lakes are surrounded by natural vegetation and a myriad of picnic tables and chairs. Footpaths weave in and out amongst the greenery, and allow the pedestrian to traverse the entire lake system from top to bottom. The walk itself is a lovely experience.
The footpaths are completely sealed and relatively level, making the walk accessible for those wanting something more gentle. The quality of the footpaths makes the track also ideal for small children on bicycles and mothers with prams.
While you can start and finish your at any point along the pathways, some easy access points are on Albany Street (opposite Sir Raeleigh Drive) or Springhill Drive opposite Edgewater Place.
