Mayor's Community Message

Council to unlock the Ryde River Walk’s missing link 

In a huge win for the community, the City of Ryde will build the 150 metre missing link of the Ryde River Walk between Bill Mitchell Park and Ross Street at Tennyson Point. 

The Ryde River Walk is one of Sydney’s great waterfront walks and building this missing link will ensure the entire community can access this picturesque part of the Parramatta River.

The final design for the missing link is based on extensive consultation with stakeholders and ensures none of the boardwalk will be built on private land. It will also help preserve the ecological importance of the area. 

Community Christmas Celebration this Sunday

Get into the Christmas spirit this Sunday afternoon with the City of Ryde’s annual Community Christmas Celebration which takes place between 3.00pm and 7.00pm at Ryde Park. 

The day will feature live entertainment including Christmas carols, a special Christmas show from Nick Jnr’s Sam Moran, a performance from the Christmas Groove band, and even a visit from Santa Claus himself.

There will be free kids activities including a giant sand pit, bubble fun with Bubble Girl and hula hooping with SpinJoy. Wristbands can be purchased for $15 that gives access to unlimited inflatables.

A barbecue will also be held to raise money for the Country Women’s Association of NSW Drought Aid Appeal.

Entry to the event is free. for more information click here. 

Dig deep to help those in need

The City of Ryde is asking the community to dig deep and donate to its fundraising campaign for the Salvation Army Bushfire Disaster Appeal.

Money raised for the Bushfire Disaster Appeal will go towards supporting people displaced due to recent bushfires.

Collection buckets will also be placed at various Council locations including the Customer Service Centre, all five City of Ryde Library branches, the Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre and Council’s North Ryde Office.

Bushfire Risk Management Plan 

We are seeking community input into the five year review of the local Bushfire Risk Management Plan, which helps to identify locations at risk of bush fires and sets out strategies to protect local assets.

Submissions are open until 30 December and can be made by clicking here.

Yours Sincerely,
