Room for a bicycle path behind the wall along Balmain Rd.
As noted in the Page on Callan Park (under Campaigns and Issues)the State Government has sat on the Masterplan prepared by Leichhardt Council in 2010-11. A number of bicycle routes and facilities were proposed through and alongside Callan Park, notably a bike path along the Balmain Rd frontage, either on-road or off-road.

Perhaps it is time to ask the new Innerwest Council to again look at a separated cycleway along Balmain Rd, from Wharf Rd to Cecily St or possibly Manning St, by removing car parking on the non-residential side and/or widening the footpath in places to make a shared path. After all there is plenty of parking in the car park near the Ambulance HQ, and the internal roads such as Garden Way and the adjacent lawns, where cars seem to be parked at will.

This would make cycling between Leichhardt and Rozelle safer and more attractive.

    The State Government has awoken from its slumber and is asking for public comment on what to do with Callan Park. They have appointed a consultant, Tyrell, to come up with some new ideas. The Masterplan appears to be dead, but something new may be developing. Neil and I asked for a meeting with the responsible Minister (Gabrielle Upton) and actually got one yesterday, with an adviser. We put a list of items we thought would improve cycling to and in Callan Park, based on the submission to the Masterplan back in 2011. The adviser listened and we got a good hearing, but she was tightlipped on what might happen. Our submission is at
