Sadly there's a LOT of rubbish along the foreshore at George Kendall Riverside Park. It would actually have to be THE MOST LITTER POLLUTED spot (that's easily accessible) along Parramatta River we've found.... and trust us, we've gone looking!
So we're holding regular litter clean ups to make a significant dent on the amount of rubbish that has built up along the foreshore in Ermington and continues to collect there. And in just the last 6 months, we've removed a massive 150 bags/ over 600kgs of rubbish!!
Our clean up site is over 400m long and we have 6 clean up spots marked out, with a Litter Leader at each, to keep us covid safe. This is a family friendly event and it's best suited to kids 4yrs+. All equipment is supplied, you just need to wear gumboots or enclosed, sturdy shoes.
We'd LOVE to have your help - many hands make light work! We have a great, growing group of local families who regularly join us. At our October clean up, there was over 60 adults and kids!!
You'll find our welcome table near the end of Broadoaks Street, just at the start of the disused path along the foreshore in George Kendall Riverside Park. There's a nearby carpark, Cafe W is a short walk away and so are toilets and playgrounds.
