Kangaroo Bay Rivulet Track opens

A NEW track that provides safe passage between Gordons Hill Road and Kangaroo Bay has now opened.

The Kangaroo Bay Rivulet Track links Gordons Hill Road and Fairway Rise with the historic Rosny Farm and Charles Hand Park via Kangaroo Bay Rivulet.

Clarence Mayor Doug Chipman said the new track now provided safe access for residents between the two locations.

“I would like to congratulate the Clarence City Council’s Tracks and Trails Committee, along with Council staff and contractors, who helped with planning and construction,” he said.

The track was a priority identified in Council’s Tracks and Trails Action Plan.

It was constructed in response to initial requests from the Senior Action Group Eastern Shore and Rosny College to develop a safe, off-road walking and cycling route for residents.

Tracks and Trails Committee chairperson Alderman Richard James said the Kangaroo Bay Rivulet Track was a pleasant and enjoyable walk from Gordons Hill Road, past the Rosny Park Public Golf Course and through to the southern end of Eastlands and Rosny Farm.

“This is just one of the many projects identified as a priority and I hope that members of the public enjoy the new track,” he said.
