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.

Local residents took up the call to get out and grow for National Tree Day with nearly 200 people turning for events held by the Inner West Council. As a result an amazing 2,650 new plantings were put in the ground across three sites - Leichhardt Park, Richard Murden Reserve in Haberfield and Steel Park in Marrickville.
A huge thank you to everyone who came along to take part in Australia’s largest tree-planting and nature care event. Check out some great pictures from the day here.
