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.) Check out this Downtown Greenway Detour map.
Phase 1 is open from Spring Garden Street to S. Eugene Street. Phase 1 from S. Eugene Street to Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive is under contract for construction. The remaining section of Phase 1 from Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to E. Gate City Boulevard design is pending.
The design process for Phase 2 is nearly complete. Phase 2 is accommodated on existing roadways along Murrow Boulevard and Fisher Avenue from E. Gate City Boulevard to N. Eugene Street.
The design process for Phase 3 is complete. Phase 3 is accommodated on existing roadways along N. Eugene Street and Smith Street, ending at the junction of Phase 4 and 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.
