The Downtown Greenway (0.7 miles)
- Surface: Asphalt
- Traffic: Multiple Use
- Amenities: Public Art
The Downtown Greenway is an urban paved trail that typically is 12 feet wide with buffers between the trails and roadways, and features enhanced landscaping and lighting, site furnishings that include benches, bicycle racks, drinking fountains, trash and recycling receptacles, and public art.
When complete, this greenway will create a four-mile loop around the heart of downtown and connect not only other trails and greenways but businesses, universities and neighborhoods. This greenway is special in that it is an effort supported not only by the City and state through grants and bonds, but also through many community organizations and individuals. The Downtown Greenway would not be possible without community support.
