The GreenWay is an urban green corridor in Sydney's Inner West. It is a bush corridor and a hub for community arts and groups, bushcare, walking and cycling. The GreenWay Community is maintaining a campaign to build an off-road shared path from the Cooks River to Iron Cove. This trail was to be built as part of the Inner West Light Rail Extension but was deferred by the state government. As an interim measure we have marked out an alternative route to help people travel along the corridor.

GreenWay volunteers, workers and supporters take a bow. The Cooks River to Iron Cove GreenWay has won the inaugural Greater Sydney Planning Award for Great Community Led Project. The prestigious award is testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment of so many people in the local community who have strived to see the vision of creating a 5.5km green corridor through Sydney’s inner west become a reality. The Awards celebrate bold, city-making projects and showcase examples that integrate social, environmental and economic considerations. The judges assessed that ‘The GreenWay provides a collaborative model which has sustained itself over many years and serves to guide other potential projects’.
