Cyclists can now loop Maitland Park after the final work on the shared pathway was finished on Monday.
Construction of the $1.2 million cycleway and path started in May 2012.
It was completed in four stages with some Roads and Maritime Services money used for stage one.
Maitland City Council paid for the remainder.
The 1.8 kilometre loop meanders around the park and joins the Maitland Station overhead pedestrian bridge to Devonshire, Elgin and Park streets.
“This is for the recreational cyclists, not so much the road cyclists,” council construction and maintenance manager Ashley Kavanagh said.
“Families and people who want to get out for fitness will be able to do the loop.
“It picks up all of the passive areas of the park.”
In total, 2.1 kilometres of concrete was laid to make up the loop and the offshoots to direct people to key areas of the park.
Stage four of the project also included an upgrade to the parking along Elgin Street, to create a car park.
New gardens were added adjacent to the path and upgrades were completed to the fence that runs along the New England Highway.
The loop was scheduled to be ready for use on Tuesday evening.
