The GreenWay Route

We have marked out an alternative temporary route with stencils and signs to enable the community to explore the GreenWay. It takes about 40 minutes to do the entire route on a bike from the Cooks River to Iron Cove or vice verse. 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!

The GreenWay Councils and community are working together to acheive the GreenWay Trail vision for a safe, off-road shared user pathway for walking and cycling connecting the Cooks River Pathway to the Iron Cove Bay Run. A campaign is underway to pressure the State Government to build the GreenWay now. We are also working up plans for critical missing links.


Existing shared pathways

Shared pathways already in place at the northern part of the corridor, and you can enjoy a relaxing walk or ride through the northern end GreenWay from the Iron Cove BayRun right through to Cadigal Reserve in Summer Hill.

The GreenWay Trail starts at the Iron Cove BayRun, where the pathway takes you through Richard Murden Reserve in Haberfield.

Cadigal ReserveThe pathway continues alongside Hawthorne Canal, where you cross over Marion Street, Leichhardt and continue along the Canal Walk, passing the colourful Lords Road Mural, and bringing you to the historic Battle Bridge on Parramatta Road.

Walking up and onto the overpass over Parramatta Road, you will come down and re-join the pathway which takes you right through to Cadigal Reserve at Grosvenor Crescent, Summer Hill.

Bike riders can follow quiet streets through the Inner West to meander down to join the Cooks River Cycleway at Earlwood.
