The idea for the Greenway was first proposed as part of the Center City Master Plan in 2001 prepared by Cooper Carry. The Downtown Greenway is a 4.8 mile walking and biking trail that loops around downtown Greensboro and enhances the urban landscape with a green space that promotes fitness and encourages alternative transportation and community interaction. The Greenway is the central hub of Greensboro’s extensive 80 mile trails system and provides a connection among over a dozen in-town neighborhoods, as well as to neighborhoods and communities further out. The Downtown Greenway also serves as a venue to promote and display public art. It features four iconic pieces of art called Cornerstones and will display additional public art throughout the trail.
