Imagine a safe place to walk and ride in Sydney’s Inner West…

The Inner West Council has proposed a shared path along Iron Cove Creek. The path will connect Ashfield Pool to Iron Cove Bay and make our local area a better place to live, support our health, and improve our environment.

The project has received $100,000 funding from the Inner West Council for a master plan – which will map out design options and capture what the community wants to see. The NSW State Government also awarded a grant of $90,000 in 2021.

Now we need your help: Strong community support will encourage the Inner West Council and state government to build this much needed community asset as quickly as possible.


We live in a beautiful city, with amazing parks and playgrounds, fantastic schools, state of the art pools and gyms, and delicious food. But they are all separated by busy roads that have been designed to move cars through, instead of inviting people to stay and enjoy. Our community wants safe spaces to walk and ride bikes to get around – the Iron Cove Creek path can get us there.

Friends of Iron Cove Creek is a non-partisan, grassroots community organisation formed to gauge and represent the views of residents in the Inner West LGA in Sydney, Australia on the Council’s proposed project to create a walkway/cycleway on Iron Cove Creek (Dobroyd Canal) from Ashfield to connect with existing paths in Iron Cove Bay. This would be accessible for everyone throughout Croydon, Haberfield, Road Point, Five Dock, Ashfield and more.
