Sydney’s urbanised inner west is a great place to grab a coffee, head out for dinner or enjoy some top night life but did you know it’s also a fantastic place to explore the great outdoors and community life?
That’s right! Amidst the buzz of traffic and urban living a more relaxed and natural place exists – the GreenWay.
Perhaps one of the area’s best kept secrets - the GreenWay connects the Cooks River Cycleway from Earlwood to the Iron Cove Bay Run at Haberfield, and it links the inner west council areas of Canterbury, Marrickville, Ashfield and Leichhardt, following Hawthorne Canal and Rozelle freight rail corridor (currently being converted to light rail).
Besides the local human residents, the GreenWay is home to a wide range of wildlife like reptiles, birds, flying foxes, bats, possums, frogs and even a endangered populartion of Long-nosed Bandicoots.
The GreenWay also has a safe walking and cycling path, relaxing recreational areas and plays host to a variety of community and arts projects. It’s a place to relax in nature or hang out and meet the interesting and varied people in your neighbourhood.
The Cadigal-Wangal people are the traditional owners of the lands in the GreenWay.
It’s your GreenWay so get out there, and get involved!
