Ryde River Walk

“Providing seamless community access to a natural treasure of suburban Sydney”

Executive Summary

Stretching 10km from end to end, the Ryde River Walk is a popular pedestrian and cycle route following the Parramatta River from Gladesville Bridge to Ryde Bridge in Sydney. Fleetwood was engaged by the project’s landscape contractor following a successful tender to the City of Ryde Council, who was looking to upgrade access to the Walk and provide a more seamless journey through the addition of several new boardwalk sections that connected directly with existing concrete paths. Using our proven Mars™ boardwalk system, Fleetwood successfully designed, manufactured and installed the new structures, whilst preserving the area’s pristine mangrove and marine habitats.

Scope of Work

Deliver, Detail



Fleetwood Involvement

Fleetwood was initially involved as part of a successful tender to City of Ryde. Our first task was to find ways to deliver cost savings on the project, which we did by recommending our in-house Mars™ boardwalk system. This was accepted by the client and, by the time the project was completed, the entire boardwalk had been designed, constructed and certified by Fleetwood Urban using our DesignExecute2™ delivery model.

Community Engagement

All community engagement was managed by the client, City of Ryde.
