This short, pleasant loop walk is a nice one to do if you are having a picnic in the Lakes of Cherrybrook Park, enjoying the atmosphere, free electric BBQs and playground. There is a good viewing platform extending onto the lake and there are usually ducks to be seen. The nearby shopping centre has some good cafes and eateries. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
