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.
This website is a portal to all GreenWay related activities in the catchment. Get involved in the site - register and add community events, send us resource materials, and add comments. With your feedback we will continue to improve and evolve this site - let us know what you think!
Like to know what's happening around the Cooks River? Come along to this family friendly forum which will feature presentations (including from state agencies and community groups), stalls, activities for all ages, entertainment and a sausage sizzle. The Forum is being held on Saturday 13th September, at Canterbury Public School, Church St, Canterbury from 12 noon to 4pm.
On 18 July the general managers of the four councils along the Greenway signed a Memorandum of Understanding confirming financial support for the GreenWay Program for at least the next five years. Until now, the councils have been funding the GreenWay Program on a 12 monthly recurrent basis. An MoU for the councils was recommended in 2012 by the Macquarie University GreenWay Governance project team retained by the State Government funded GreenWay Sustainability Project.
