Walk to work

By Mayor Ron Hoenig
Our new pedestrian/cycleway strip on Wentworth Avenue between Mascot and Eastgardens is proving to be a big success with more and more walkers and bike riders taking advantage of a great piece of new local infrastructure.  If you haven’t wandered along the new strip of concrete, had a close look at the waterways just off Wentworth Avenue and got some exercise you should – it’s well worth it.  

I’d like to invite everyone to have a walk along the pathway on Walk to Work Day on Friday October 1. Walk to Work Day is now in its 12th year and grows each year.  I can remember one of the first Walk to Work Days when I and a few others walked around L’Estrange Park as we headed down to the Council offices in Coward Street.  This year, the new walkway along Wentworth Avenue will be the place to go and get fitter.
