List of Greenways & Trails

Blueways and greenways are terms used to describe corridors of land and water and the natural, cultural, and recreational resources they link together. The benefits to a community are numerous - preserving environmentally sensitive areas, protecting wildlife and their habitat, enjoying recreational opportunities close to home, and connecting to other people and places.

Greenways are linear open spaces, including habitats and trails that link parks, nature reserves, cultural features, or historic sites for recreation and conservation purposes.

Greenways are rapidly becoming an important urban revitalization program throughout the region. Increasingly, communities are coming together and developing greenways that link communities together through a common green thread.
