One of Canterbury-Bankstown’s most popular locations has a new 300-metre boardwalk, constructed along the banks of the Georges River.
Mayor Khal Asfour said the $780,000 project at Picnic Point was completed on schedule.
"Lambeth Reserve attracts thousands of visitors every year and this boardwalk is one of the reasons," he said.
"People love to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, with a stroll along the river, and this boardwalk provides that opportunity."
Mayor Asfour said durable and environmentally friendly materials were used to constrict the new section of the boardwalk.
"Unlike traditional materials, the fibre reinforced plastic used will not rust or rot. It is also low maintenance, termite proof, light-weight and will be more eco-friendly in the long-term," he said.
"The new boardwalk is also much wider and there is a larger viewing platform.
"After weaving your way through a variety of natural environments, such as mangrove forests, river and creek foreshores, landscaped parklands and bushland areas, you finish at a viewing deck that looks out over the Georges River.
"There’s nothing quite like seeing the sun rise or set from this spectacular scenic spot, it’s a must-do if you live or visit Canterbury-Bankstown – it is one of our hidden gems."
The Lambeth Reserve boardwalk is one of the more than 110 projects completed by Council over the past six months, with a total value of $15 million.
