Car Access: Access is via the Greensborough Bypass. At Yan Yean Road I turned left and then left again onto Memorial Drive. At the end of Memorial Drive, I turned left and followed the track to the carpark near the toilets.

 

A really nice short walk, especially considering its suburban location. Disappointingly there was quite a bit of rubbish around but I guess that is to be expected, especially because it seems to be the drinking place for the local youth.

The lake is the result of a quarry but is now a very nice feature for Yellow Gum Park. The park is well set up for recreational purposes and all tracks are wide and well maintained. A section of the walk is also along the Plenty River.
