City of Yarra Walking Maps
The City of Yarra has produced three simple, visual and engaging Walking Maps of the inner Melbourne suburbs of Fitzroy, Collingwood and Richmond to highlight some of the great opportunities and large number of locations that are easily accessible by walking or cycling.
The maps are available for download. For a high-resolution version, please e-mail the site administrator on adminthinkingtransport [dot] org [dot] au.
The Fitzroy Walking Map was recently distributed by mail to all Fitzroy and Collingwood residents.
A variation of the Walking Map was produced for residents of the housing estates in those suburbs, describing 5 walks to different locations within a 15-20 minute walking circle. These walks were translated into three other languages; Chinese, Vietnamese and Arabic.
This tool helps to raise awareness of the amenities that are within walking distance, helping to elevate walking for transport as the first choice within the local setting and also encouraging a more inclusive community.
The Fitzroy Walking Map and Collingwood Walking Map was produced in partnership with the North Yarra Community Health Centre, highlighting opportunities for such initiatives to be delivered.
