Have Your Say on the proposed 'missing link' extension of the Glebe Foreshore Walk
The City of Sydney is planning to reclaim a vital piece of Sydney’s foreshore as public space and complete a missing link of path around the Glebe Peninsula. The project will make it possible for families, workers, visitors and bike riders to wander along an accessible waterfront path from Annandale to Bridge Road, providing access to Wentworth Park and the Sydney Fish Markets. A concept design has been developed and we would like to know what you think about our proposed plans.
The proposed design includes:
- Stabilisation of the harbour’s edge with new seawalls which include niches for local marine habitat;
- A minimum three metre wide concrete walkway with high quality finishes and accessible grades;
- Tiered areas and steps to provide access down to the water’s edge;
- Foreshore habitats of salt marsh and mangroves preserved and enhanced along the harbour’s edge;
- 52 new trees including eucalyptus and black wattle, along with hundreds of shrubs and native grasses,
- New bike racks, extra seating, new rubbish bins, high quality park lighting and new signage;
- Energy efficient lighting to improve safety for pedestrians after dark; and
- Canoe storage racks at the rear of Glebe Rowing Club.
