“This is a generational project which will help create a continuous network of walking and cycling links throughout our community,” said Planning Minister and Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes.

“This idea has been floating around for decades but it’s never been able to get off the ground due to insufficient funds and boundary issues.”

“The community of the Northern Beaches has a strong focus on inclusivity. We will deliver safe and accessible new playgrounds at Manly Dam Reserve and Lionel Watts Reserve in Frenchs Forest, to give every child the chance to enjoy more exciting places to play,” Mr Persson said.
