Greensboro has one of the best collections of greenways in North Carolina.
Greenways are defined as linear tracts of open space with the ability to connect people to destinations. These “corridors” usually parallel rivers or stream beds, but can also be found along abandoned railway lines or utility easements. Greenways enhance the overall quality of life in a community by promoting healthy activities, a clean environment, and potential economic benefits.
The popularity of greenways is growing across the nation, and the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Trails Division is working diligently to build new greenways that will connect to existing greenways and trails.
