Healthy Kids in Sydney - The Healthy Kids website

Until you become a parent, you wouldn't think keeping your family healthy could be so tricky! Here, we'll explore issues, include articles by experts and refer parents to websites and resources with lots of great information and tips. 

Cycling paths around Parramatta

From an article by Marie-Antoinette Issa.

The 6 cycling paths in and around Parramatta cater for all ages and abilities. In Parramatta Park is a 3.2 km dedicated bicycle lane that undulates around the entire park. Within the park, Long Avenue (a 600-metre path running parallel to Domain Creek) is ideal for less-experienced riders and kids, as it is separated from the internal road and only accessible by authorised vehicles. 

There are official tours of the Parramatta Heritage Ride but you can also self-guide and one of the most popular routes starts at the Macquarie Street Gatehouse, passes by the Dairy Precinct, Jail and Old Government House and finishes back at Centenary Square and Town Hall. 

The Parramatta Valley Cycleway is a 15-kilometre-long path shared by both cyclists and pedestrians. It starts at Morrison Bay Park in Ryde and heads west through the Ermington Nature Reserve and along the River foreshore to the Parramatta CBD. A tunnel underpass through Lennox Bridge links the cycle way to Parramatta Park (avoiding the need to carry your bike up the Church Street steps) and you can then do a lap of Parramatta Park. 

The Subiaco Link was completed in 2017 and is an offroad path network between Parramatta Park and Sydney Olympic Park via Parramatta CBD and the Western Sydney University campus that covers almost 20km. Sydney Olympic Park has more than 35 kilometres of cycle ways for safe bike riding. Circuits for children can be found in Bicentennial Park. Other routes are the 7.5 kilometre Olympic Circuit, the 11 kilometre River Heritage Circuit and the 6km Parklands Circuit 

The T-Way Cycleway is an almost completely off-road cycleway that travels alongside the T-way bus route and Old Windsor Road, this bike path heads northwest through Constitution Hill, Old Toongabbie, Seven Hill and Norwest all the way to Windsor.
