Welcome to the GreenWay website!

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!

A sign of things to come!

Signs and stencils have been installed along the alternative GreenWay route to help people find their way from Cooks River to Iron Cove. We have also produced a mapto ensure that you wont get lost.


Take a trip down the GreenWay

With the GreenWay alternative route being marked this week (12 June) with stencils and signs why not explore the GreenWay this weekend? It takes about 30 minutes to do the entire route on a bike. If you prefer to walk you could make a day of it stopping at a cafe along the way. A4 maps or A3 maps are available to download and the large interpretative signs scattered along the corridor all have maps on the back of them. Enjoy the GreenWay!

GreenWay kids would be brighter kids!

A recent Danish study has revealled that children who walk or cycle to school have have far improved concentration levels at school than children who take the bus or a car! The Danish researchers were originally intending to measure the impacts of missing breakfast and lunch on concentration levels, but found that the biggest influence on concentration levels for the first 4 hours of the day was whether the child had walked or cycled to school! 20,000 students aged 5-19 took part in the study.

With 23 primary schools in the GreenWay catchment this is another good reason to  build the GreenWay shared path!
