Greenway Wins Great Places Award!

We are pleased to announce that the Midtown Greenway has received a 2014 Great Places Award from the Sensible Land Use Coalition!   The award jurors said the Greenway:

"Is a great connector and unparalleled in stimulating development and investment."

"Is not just a trail but a space to garden, see art and experience community events."

"Has transformed MANY people's ways of being in the city, and has MADE places, significantly and sensibly, for the widest range of people."

"Embodies one of the most significance features of a great place - the Midtown Greenway is still BECOMING."

We are proud to receive this award on behalf of the Greenway, and want to thank our donors, volunteers, and partners for helping to make the Midtown Greenway a GREAT PLACE!

Special thanks to SRF Consulting for writing and submitting the award nomination.

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?
