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. Take a virtual tour of the Downtown Greenway with our interactive map.

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
