Project includes recreational pathway network
WORK has started to create a continuous riverside recreational network that enhances Camden’s relationship with the Nepean River.
The project includes the provision of an approximate 4,275-metre extension to the current recreational pathway network, completing missing links and creating several route options to connect the Nepean River to Camden's main street via the Camden Town Farm, Fergusons Land and the Camden Bicentennial Equestrian Park.
The project will include:
Vantage points along the Nepean River;
A public art trail;
Heritage and environmental interpretation along the route;
Works to support the agricultural operations at the Camden Town Farm such as fencing and stock gates;
Landscaping works including tree planting;
Park furniture and wayfinding signage; and
Exercise equipment to support active recreation at Fergusons Land Cricket Facility.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said the project was being funded by the NSW Government’s Public Spaces Legacy Program, which aimed to significantly invest in high-quality public open spaces.
“As part of the funding agreement, the construction work will need to be complete by December this year, so residents can look forward to these connections coming to life in the near future,” Cr Fedeli said.
“The project will be broken down into portions, such as tree planting and landscaping works, fencing works, pathway works, public art and interpretation works and delivered by specialist contractors. We’ll also be embracing open space as the canvas for a public art trail along the Nepean River and will take some time to explore options shortly.
“I’m excited to see the different elements of this project come to life and look forward to residents and visitors enjoying the finished product.”
