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!

The Friends of the GreenWay stall was a hit at the Dulwich Hill Fair on Sunday 14th September. On a beautiful Spring day, several hundred people visited the stall and spoke with Friends' volunteers about bike paths, bush care and their hopes for the GreenWay. Several hundred copies of the newly printed GreenWay brochure were taken and the Inner West Environment Group handed out free natives plants. Friends of GreenWay Treasurer, Jennifer Kent said "Dulwich Hill was our most successful stall event for some time and it was really encouraging to see the level of support for the GreenWay amongst the community.
