Hi all,

Let’s get this missing path link in North Fitzroy finally completed so 
everyone can enjoy easier access to Rushall station, not getting stuck 
on a dead end path and less confusion when using the Merri Creek trail.

Bear in mind, it's only one month short of ten years since we made this 
Merri Creek Trail Review joint submission with Brunswick (now Moreland) 
and Darebin Bicycle User Groups!


*1. Complete the Yarra Council survey at this link >> Rushall Reserve - 
Draft Design for Possible Shared Path*

 >>>> http://yarraconversation.com.au/rushallreservedesign

View the draft design and have your say via the survey. Feedback is due 
on Friday 20 May 2016

*2. Share Rushall Reserve - Build the Path* is a community campaign 
supporting City of Yarra’s proposed shared trail through Rushall 
Reserve. We are local residents and interested members of the public who 
believe the shared trail will have many benefits including increased 
accessibility and safety, linking the Merri Trail and providing better 
access to Rushall Station. Let’s Share Rushall Reserve - Build the Path!

Read more about it and find out how to submit via our website: 

*3. Download  Share Rushall Reserve – Build the Path to print and 
distribute (A4, pdf)*


4. Community Information Session*
Come along to our community information session to find out more and 
discuss the draft design with Council Officers.
Where: Rushall Reserve, North Fitzroy, When: Saturday 7 May from 10am-12pm.

**5.  An example of what you can send to City of Yarra*

You might support the proposed path as it will:

  * open the park for use and enjoyment for more people in the community
  * connect the Merri Trail
  * provide easy access to the park for residents living near Rushall
  * provide a time-saving route for people walking to Rushall station
    from far-North Fitzroy
  * increase accessibility for elderly people, bicycle, pram and
    wheelchair users
  * provide more passive surveilance and an alternative exit-point,
    increasing safety
  * reduce traffic and conflict at Rushall Station underpass

"/I support The City of Yarra’s proposed design including the path 
alignment and fence, which allows existing uses, including dog play, to 
continue. Combined with the new ramp already being built at Coulson 
Reserve, the proposed path will effectively link Clifton Hill with 
far-North Fitzroy.////Please build the path to share the park."
