Recent weeks have seen progress on ten new ‘ports’ to the Murray River, with new ‘chicane’ gates providing pedestrian access to the river from the Murray River Red Gum Trail between Albury and Lake Hume.
These new access points open new possibilities for public use and community connections with nature and the river environs, and are one of the many features of Project 66. Once access and walking trails are established, picnic tables, interpretive and directional signage will follow – all generated from and by our community.
Keep an eye on our Murray River Regional Parklands interactive maps for further information as new access infrastructure is installed and new trail sections are opened for community use.
Parklands Albury Wodonga is grateful to have received grant funding from the Australian Government for this project, thanks to a Black Summer Bushfire Recovery grant that is focused on improving public access to the Murray River.
