Residents and visitors to the Camden area will soon be able to take in picturesque landscapes, glistening waterways and inspiring art along a four-kilometre extension to the walking trail though Camden Town Farm and Fergusons Land cricket facility.

Along the trail, visitors will be delighted by breathtaking artworks from local artists, including Melissa Barton, Jane Cavanough, Kevin Vo, Graham Chalcroft, Mark McClelland, Cathy Drew and Peter Day.

Included in the project is a 4-kilometre walking trail extension that connects the Nepean River to Camden’s main street via the Camden Town Farm, Fergusons Land and the Bicentennial Equestrian Park.

Viewing platforms to the Nepean River, Camden’s first official public art trail and works to support the agricultural operations at the Camden Town Farm such as fencing and stock gates form part of the work.

Work includes the installation of exercise equipment, park furniture and wayfinding signs, historical and environmental interpretive signage and water stations, landscaping works such as tree planting.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Ashleigh Cagney, pictured above at one of the viewpoints along the walkway, said this was an exciting project.

“Walkways like this one provide the perfect way for people to get out and about and enjoy a healthy lifestyle,” she said.

“To have a connection between Camden and the Nepean in such a fantastic way will be an incredible asset to the Camden area.

“I’d like to thank the NSW Government for providing us the opportunity to carry out these fantastic works.”

The Linking Camden Town Centre to the Nepean River project, which will be completed over the coming months, is being funded through the NSW Government Public Spaces Legacy Program.

The program aims to accelerate development assessment times to meet the demand for housing and employment.

The NSW Government is contributing $5.1 million to the Linking Camden Town Centre to the Nepean River project.
