Chatswood is a major suburb of Sydney loaced around 9 kilometres north of the CBD. It sits conveniently close to everything and the railway station is a transport hub, making commuting easy. There are ample employment opportunities in the area with Chatswood’s commercial hub and it also has vibrant shopping centres and a real mix of people, old and young. Long established residents as well as newcomers like the fact that there are still many parts of the suburb with large blocks- ideal for growing families. The suburb does cater well for people with disabilities and mobility scooters can enjoy the many restaurants and shops that have ready access for disabled people. We spoke to mobility scooter user Ron recently, who commented very favourably about life in Chatswood; “I’m retired and am enjoying life with the wife. I’m not as mobile as I used to be though and rely a fair bot on my scooter to get around. We really do enjoy going to the RSL for lunch, it’s right next to the station and has a great specials. Wheelchairs and mobility scooters no problem. We do our shopping at Chatswood Chase and my scooter gets me round to all the spots we need.”
