Open spaces: Warriewood Valley
Warriewood Valley is a 110 hectare land release in Sydney’s Northern Beaches area in which a range of commercial and residential development is planned. Open space is an integral part of the plan for this site, with the provision of a two hectare district park and a number of smaller neighbourhood parks, as well as a comprehensive network of walking and cycling paths that follow the restored creekline corridors within the site. These multi-use pathways will be integrated with the surrounding area, and will support active living by encouraging people to walk and cycle to local destinations – both within and outside the release area.
As well as enhancing connectivity and providing pedestrian/cycling access to services and facilities, the creekline corridor paths will encourage active living in their own right. The paths are attractive, well designed and of high quality, and as such will be a means for people to access and enjoy the open space that is close to their homes. Residents and visitors can walk or cycle along the level paths and experience the newly created parks and open space, as well as the area’s natural diverse vegetation of coastal dunes, wetlands, swamp, eucalypt and angophora forest.
