Feasibility Study
GREENWAY SYSTEM

 

Greenway with people walkingHave you heard the word ‘greenway' and wondered what it means or what it is? The term ‘greenway' is synonymous with the wide ‘sidewalk' or linear park running through Jefferson City near Wears Creek. A Greenway system includes small strips of land, typically beside a road or stream, and parcels of land maintained in a natural condition where development is limited. Pathways for public use connect the strips and blocks of land.

The greenway is a multi-use trail designed to provide a safe alternative to walk, jog, bike, or skate away from busy city streets. There are approximately 15 miles of greenway trail throughout Jefferson City providing additional opportunities for outdoor recreation, relaxation and enjoyment. See the inset box below for specific trail sections and lengths.

The greenway trail system is always expanding by connecting parks, neighborhoods, schools and businesses throughout the city. If you would like more information on the Jefferson City Greenway, if you have ideas on where or how the greenway should be extended, or if your organization or neighborhood can provide volunteer labor or funding, contact the Parks and Recreation office. We are always working to make Jefferson City a nicer place to live.

 
GREENWAY MASTER PLAN
The Greenway Master Plan for the City of Jefferson has recently been updated.  The last official Greenway plan was developed in 1991.  Since then, updates to the plan have been made through the 1996 Comprehensive Plan Update and the 2001 City Beautification Plan.  Check here to see the adopted Greenway Master Plan.
