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!
With the never ending sunshine of late it's a great time to get out and enjoy a walk or ride along the GreenWay. If you haven't visited of late why not make a trip and see our first-ever commissioned public art work “Tree Cycle” by Inner West artist Graham Chalcroft which was installed earlier this year on the Hawthorne Canal foreshore near the City West Link bridge on Canal Road.
