Supporting walking

These markers follow the 'goat track' across Garden City Reserve which will soon become a proper walking path as part of the Garden City landscape plan.
Historically, councils tended to put paths where they thought people should walk. Now, the wisdom of walkers is respected and the new path will follow the route people use. An older resident walks from her home in Garden City Reserve to the South Melbourne market and back!

Walking is something we all do, and all intend to do more of.

I will support walking through
  • greater attention to the quality of footpaths

  • addressing weak links in walking routes

  • supporting walking groups
