Greenways are a bold idea with the magic to stir people to action. Greenways themselves are not new. We want to encourage their spread across the American landscape, by focusing on their values to communities. A nationwide network could ultimately grow from local action in thousands of communities across America.

Greenways have been described as linear parks within towns and cities. These parks are usually found along flood-prone rivers and streams, often the only undeveloped land left within cities. When trails are constructed through these parcels, however, they become popular recreation areas for walking, jogging or even bicycling. They also provide linkage between neighborhoods and public areas such as schools or shopping centers, and even help maintain wildlife habitat and unique natural areas.

No other single conservation opportunity offers so many advantages. No single environmental solution serves so many purposes. Publicly or privately owned, following rivers or ridges, greenways can link the nation in a network of green.

A greenway is a corridor of open space. Greenways vary greatly in scale, from narrow ribbons of green that run through urban, suburban, and rural areas to wide corridors that incorporate diverse natural, cultural, and scenic features. Greenways can be land- or water-based, running along stream corridors, shorelines or wetlands. Some follow old railways, canals, ridge tops, or other features. They can incorporate both public and private property. Some greenways are primarily recreational corridors, while others function almost exclusively for environmental protection and are not designed for human passage. Greenways differ in their location and function, but overall, a greenway network will protect natural, cultural, and scenic resources, provide recreational benefits, enhance the natural beauty and the quality of life in neighborhoods and communities, and stimulate economic development opportunities.

Greenways provide a wide range of benefits for people, wildlife and the economy, and a system of greenways and larger greenscapes offers many, long-term ecological benefits.
Greenways:
• preserve biodiversity

• protect water quality
• direct growth
• maintain character/sense of place
• serve as outdoor classrooms
• provide outdoor recreation
• contribute to high quality of life
• enhance surrounding property values
• stimulate tourism and related business ventures

Greenway corridors have three standard features: they are linear pieces of land, they are under some form of long-term protection and they connect one area to another.

…greenways are features that tie a bigger system of park components together, and they emphasize harmony with the natural environment, provide outdoor recreation opportunities, and help create an interconnected park system.

Greenways can draw people together in their communities to provide open spaces for all close to their own homes. They have the potential to be this country’s most important land-based effort for conservation and recreation in the next several decades.
They can draw private and local entities into lead roles in provision of recreation opportunities. They can capitalize on the entrepreneurial spirit of Americans and give pride of accomplishment and responsibility to millions of people in every community. They can protect vital water, fish, wildlife, and recreation resources as integral parts of the growth of cities and communities.
And, if greenways truly capture the imagination and boldness of the American spirit, they could eventually form the corridors that connect open spaces, parks, forests, and deserts—and Americans—from sea to shining sea.

Greenways provide more bang for the recreational buck by taking advantage of otherwise unbuildable landscapes like floodplains and ridgelines, and by linking lands already in public ownership.
