About the Coalition

Our founders had the idea for the Greenway, then formed the Midtown Greenway Coalition to get it built.   

The corridor used to be a trash-filled trench that was a disgrace to our city.  Now, it contains a world-class biking and walking trail that's the envy of cities across the nation.  In fact, the Midtown Greenway trail has been named the best urban bike trail in the USA!

Our work didn't end after the Greenway was built.  Now, we work to protect and enhance it.

A few years ago we fought to keep high-voltage overhead power lines out of the Greenway – and we won!   

We operate a nightly Trail Watch bike patrol; work to install more lighting and create safer street crossings; and operate greening and cleaning programs that help keep the Greenway green.

We raise all of our own funds and receive no operational funding from the government.

We're a coalition of individuals and organizations that love the Midtown Greenway and want to protect and enhance it.

Love the Greenway too?
