The Downtown Greenway is a proposed four-mile loop around downtown Greensboro, made up of on- and off-street greenway links. The Greenway is a partnership between the City and Action Greensboro.
Downtown Greenway Detour Ride
With the completion of another phase of the Downtown Greenway, the signed detour route is a fun way to walk or bike around downtown. The route, which follows roadways and part of the Latham Park Greenway, consists of bike lanes, signed bike routes and a sidewalk for walkers, joggers and runners. Just follow the signs! And remember to follow all traffic laws. (Bicycles are prohibited from using the sidewalk within the Central Business District.) Downtown Greenway Detour Map
Phase 1 is open from Spring Garden Street to S. Eugene Street. Phase 1 design activities from S. Eugene Street to E. Lee Street are underway.
The design process for Phase 2 is underway. Phase 2 is accommodated on existing roadways along Murrow Boulevard and Fisher Avenue from E. Lee Street to N. Eugene Street.
The design process for Phase 3 is underway. Phase 3 is accommodated on existing roadways along N. Eugene Street and Smith Street, ending at the Atlantic and Yadkin Greenway.
Phase 4 will be built on top of the historic Atlantic and Yadkin Railroad once the sole remaining user abandons the rail line. Design activities for this phase will be completed when the Atlantic and Yadkin Greenway is designed. The 3.2 mile Atlantic and Yadkin Greenway from Markland Drive to Spring Garden Street includes Phase 4 (0.9 miles).
