However, the detail of the plan for Federal Park is sadly inconsistent with this. There is a major road that dissects the park and breaks the continuous shared footpath and cycleway that follows the creek from Wigram Road to its mouth at Rozelle Bay.

The plan and amenity of the parklands (cricket pitch) would be significantly improved by eliminating the roadway across Johnston's Creek.

And if necessary providing limited vehicle access from the Roundabout to the Crescent just East of the Creek/Canal.

Annandale Residents have fought for this parkland for over a century. See history at
