Greensboro Downtown Greenway
Greensboro, North Carolina
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.
