Join us for our Progressive Dinner & 20th Anniversary Celebration!

Sunday, October 4th, 4:30 - 7:30 on the Midtown Greenway!

The Midtown Greenway Coalition became an official nonprofit organization in 1995.  Join us for a look back on how we worked to get the Greenway built, and an update on our current and future plans for the corridor.


We'll start with Appetizers in Uptown, at Elan Uptown Apartments. 

Next up, the Main Course in Midtown, featuring the backyard pizza oven that launched WildEarth Woodfired Pizza. 

The event will end with Sweets in Seward, in a sweet backyard located a few blocks from the Greenway. Enjoy dessert from The Birchwood Cafe and home-made treats from the neighbors! Plus live music, ping-pong, and more! 

Wine and beer included (must be 21).  Beer provided by New Belgium Brewing.

Join us for a great night on the Greenway!


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?
