What was once a freight line until the '80s recently re-opened as another revitalized green passage for pedestrians and cyclists in Sydney, Australia. A 500-meter-long (about 1,640 feet) hybrid park and walkway, the Goods Line is the first phase of a revitalization project underway in downtown Sydney and is in keeping with other urban renewal projects worldwide—like its longer, elevated, glamorous cousin, New York City's High Line. Commissioned by the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and designed by ASPECT Studios with Chrofi Architects, the landscape is a mix of preserved parts of the old train line and newly landscaped platforms and niches for people to gather.
