Draft Walking Trail Strategy

Submissions closing on 31 August 2018, 05:00 PM


The Town of Cambridge is seeking your comments on the Draft Walking Trail Strategy.

The Town benefits from very good existing infrastructure to support walking, both locally and linking with regional pathways. The Town's natural assets, cultural heritage and destinations combine to offer many reasons for walking.

The Walking Trail Strategy has been developed to build upon these existing assets to recognise, promote and guide development of walking trails through the Town encouraging greater accessibility to our natural areas and open spaces.

Existing recognised regional and local trails within the Town total a distance of more than 40km, with the majority of these trails signposted and marketed through various channels.

This Strategy identifies an initial additional 20kms of trails using existing infrastructure that will be recognised, signposted and marketed in a staged approach. It is proposed that a pilot trail be implemented in City Beach upon which the subsequent trails will be modelled.

The purpose of the consultation is to obtain feedback and recommendations on the draft strategy as well as identifying future trails and to create a diversified and connected network of trails through the Town.

Please review the draft Walking Trail Strategy and submit your feedback by 5pm Friday 31 August 2018.

The draft Walking Trail Strategy will be available at Bold Park Aquatic, the Cambridge Library, the Wembley Community Centre and the Administration Centre.
