Walking and cycling routes: Cooks River
The Cooks River Pathway is one of the oldest and most significant shared pedestrian and cycling paths in Sydney, extending from Mason Park at Homebush Bay Drive in Homebush Bay to the Cooks River entrance into Botany Bay. The Pathway is centrally located in the Sydney metropolitan region, with a large population base close by, and follows the foreshore of the Cooks River, covering the full length of the catchment.
The mostly-level Pathway leads to popular local destinations and focal points, including town centres, railway stations, many attractive parks and reserves and a range of recreation and sporting amenities and facilities. As such it provides a variety of opportunities for a wide range of people to experience the natural environment close to their homes, by bicycle or on foot. Usage of the pathway and associated open spaces is especially high during early mornings, evenings, in summer and on Sundays.
