Revitalisation of the Nepean River showcased through online interactive map

Revitalisation of the Nepean River showcased through online interactive map
September 7, 2021

A new online interactive map developed by Penrith City Council showcases the ongoing revitalisation of the Nepean River, and helps residents and visitors discover everything to see and do there.    

Details about major projects being delivered on both sides of the Nepean River are now easier to find with the map outlining their location, status and where to find more information about the projects so residents can keep up to date.    

The map is designed to help visitors plan a trip to the Nepean River by providing details and locations of public and accessible toilets, car parks and on-street parking spaces, along with picnic spots, playgrounds and where to grab the best view or photo.

The interactive map also allows users to discover things to see and do at the Nepean River including walking tracks, where to launch a kayak from, appropriate fishing spots and popular locations to book for wedding ceremonies.  

Penrith Mayor Karen McKeown said the new interactive map will be a valuable resource for residents and visitors and notes “the Nepean River is a hive of construction activity at the moment and this map will help residents and visitors to understand what’s planned for the Nepean River as well as all the different ways they can experience and enjoy our region’s greatest natural asset.”

Penrith City Council’s ongoing program of work to enhance the Nepean River and create more opportunities for people to meet, relax, explore, play and be active in the outdoors is set to strengthen Penrith’s position as Western Sydney’s most liveable city.
