Project overview

Penrith City Council is proposing to build two new kayak launch decks to make it safer and easier for people of all ages to launch kayaks and other passive watercraft such as canoes and stand up paddleboards on the Nepean River.

The new launch decks are planned to be built on River Road, Leonay and at Factory Road Reserve, Regentville to create opportunities for people to access the water on both sides of the Nepean River.

Improving access to the Nepean River for fishing and kayaking was identified as a priority for our community in the Our River Masterplan (2013) and the delivery of these launch decks will be another step towards realising this vision.
