Emu Walking Trail Upgrade
Roxby Council has received a grant for $200,000 from the State Government’s Open Space Grant program to upgrade the Emu Walk.
The aim is to rejuvenate the three kilometre long walking and cycling trail to encourage greater usage, promote active lifestyles and social opportunities and provide a safe, accessible and appealing environment for both residents and visitors. Proposed enhancements include interpretative signage to increase appreciation and understanding of the natural surrounds, improved lighting, more seating, a rest area with vistas toward the mine, and improved road crossing points. The project includes redesigning the Hermit Street playground into a nature play based playground.
These enhancements will encourage visitors to stop for a while and explore Roxby on foot. Council will match the funding received from this grant and project planning will commence as soon as the 2017/2018 budget is approved. Council will be proudly supporting local contractors throughout this upgrade project
