Chance’s Park was the only park in Carlisle to win a Green Flag Award in 2014, and includes a number of areas of interest:
* Georgian Garden – a restored and modernised interpretation of the original formal gardens which would have surrounded the Manor
* Manor Grounds – an area of lawns and shrub beds with many historic trees, containing the original restored Ha-ha (boundary ditch/wall)
* Hay Meadow – a long strip of grasses and some wild flowers typically found in traditional hay meadows in North Cumbria. This area is mown annually and a hay crop removed by local contractors.
* Wider Park – Chance’s Park is characterised by rolling, open park land, complete with both mature trees and more recent plantings. The park is served by a network of high quality paths, from which the historic medieval ridge and furrow ploughing systems can be seen.
Visitors to Chance’s Park are offered a variety of recreational features:
* Football pitches – located within the main areas of the park
* Mini Multi Use Games Area – all weather playing surface suitable for a range of games
* Play Area – large and well equipped, with equipment for all ages
* Nature Trail – a way marked route around the park with accompanying leaflets (available from the Community Centre)
