What Is A Greenway?
Geenways are corridors of protected
open space managed for conservation, recreation and non-motorized
transportation. Greenways often follow natural land or water features
and provide links to many community features such as parks, schools,
historic sites, and natural areas. Most greenways include trails, which
may be either paved or soft-surfaced.
Greenways not only protect
environmentally important lands and native plants and animals, they also
link people with the natural world and outdoor recreational
opportunities. Greenways provide what many citizens seek-close to home
recreational areas, safe routes for non-motorized transportation, and
areas of natural beauty.
