August 2023 Update

Council is seeking community feedback on the proposed active transport link for Duck River, from Heath St to Horlyck Reserve Granville.

Guided by the Duck River Strategic Masterplan Council has prepared concept designs to formalise the pedestrian and cycling pathway from Heath St Granville to Horlyck Reserve in Granville. This connection will link into cycleway network along the Duck River Parklands with the Regional Active Transport network across Greater Sydney. This supports initiatives for an active and healthy community.

This project is part of the Metropolitan Greenspace Program that is proudly funded by the NSW Government in association with Local Government NSW.
