Have your say on Nepean River Project
Residents are invited to have their say on a future riverside recreational network that will connect the Nepean River to Camden Town Centre.
The $5.1 million project, funded by the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Project, will enhance the community’s connection with the iconic Nepean River. It will see the development of a recreational network completing missing links and creating several route options connecting 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:
- Walkway along the Nepean River;
- Viewing platforms 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 it was important to have community feedback on the exciting project.
“Council is focused on providing the community with another fantastic walking track around one of our biggest assets in the Nepean River and we would love feedback from our residents,” Cr Fedeli said.
“This project is about providing high quality open space for the Camden community to enjoy and there is no better place than along the Nepean.
“I encourage residents to have their say on the project as Council puts together plans.”
The Nepean River Connect project will also realise objectives identified as part of the Camden Town Centre Urban Design Framework.
The project is on public exhibition until Thursday 13 January, 2023.
