Terrys Creek Walking Trail

Consultation closed on 05 November 2017

City of Ryde is upgrading the existing Terrys Creek Walking Trail over the next 3 years. The upgrade seeks to formalise parts of the existing Terrys Creek Walking Trail connecting a number of bushland reserves from Forrester Park to the Lane Cove National Park. This is a key recreational corridor identified in the Draft North District Plan for Sydney and Green Grid Plan.


Works will improve access and connections whilst protecting the environmental values of this bushland corridor along the creekline.

The first year of the project commenced in 2016 and involved project scoping and design for the trail. Council is now seeking community feedback on the proposed design.  

Council will also be working with City of Parramatta to ensure alternate routes are available whilst works are underway. 

Latest Updates

Project Update - February 2018

Published on 12 February 2018

We received a great response on the proposal from many local and Parramatta Council residents. Queries were raised regarding fauna disturbance, confirmation of the track pathway, flooding, track widening and vegetation disturbance to bike trail activity concerns. All of these comments were noted by Council for the project to discuss and modify where possible.

The trail will follow the existing pathway to upgrade areas that are degraded and unsafe for passage, and will not be promoting active bike trail usage. Concerns for fauna are also being considered and the project is working with Parramatta Council to ensure consideration across both trails when the project is underway.

Council is very pleased by the interest, input and feedback by the community towards the project and in preservation of our natural areas.

Next Steps
Works are due to commence in 2018 in a staged and considered effort. The works will begin at the Epping Road end of the track.
