About the Project

Hornsby Shire Council will soon commence construction of a public boardwalk and shared pathway at Brooklyn, between Kangaroo Point (south of Peats Ferry Bridge) and Seymours Creek (opposite Tom Richardson Oval).

The project is being funded by the NSW State Government under its ‘Get NSW Active Program’ and ‘Metropolitan Greenspace Program’ and will involve construction of an elevated boardwalk and a concrete pathway extending approximately one kilometre. The route is in a spectacular mangrove and bushland setting and has been sensitively designed to minimise the impact to the intertidal zone, saltmarsh and mangrove areas while providing an opportunity to walk along the foreshore, to sit and enjoy the views and to engage with this unique natural setting.

The boardwalk will connect with a soon-to-be-completed shared pedestrian and cycle path along Brooklyn Road, both of which are part of Council’s master plan to provide a connected active transport route between Kangaroo Point and Brooklyn township.
