Walking and cycling are both great ways of improving health and enhancing wellbeing. The Tuggerah Lakes estuary offers many shared pathways for locals and tourists to enjoy. Modernised, wide lanes boast scenic views of the lakes and can be used by walkers, cyclists, parents with prams, as well as community members in wheelchairs or those using other mobility aids. The parks, kids’ playgrounds, toilets, picnic and barbecue areas are all located along these pathways, making them family-friendly and all-age appropriate. Here, everyone can enjoy different local experiences – from pelican feeding, picnics on the foreshores or pet walking to practising outdoor yoga or fitness. Along the way, you can also find the wildlife habitats of insects, birds, fish and small mammals.
Central Coast Council is committed to the ongoing development of the shared pathways. In 2020, we are planning to invest an additional $6.9 million into their upgrade.
