I wanted to find a new walking trail in Greenville and decided to try this one. It's 3.2 miles long one way. The scenery of the river and trees were breathtaking. There were many shaded areas that it made it comfortable. However, there were times...More

Good greenway, needs expansion to service the entire county. Wish it was tied to a rails to trials and connected the entire state of North Carolina.

This area continues to improve and has become a place in Greenville that everyone likes and cherishes. I like to bike there, lay out in the sun on the Town Common and just watch the Tar River. A nice scenic spot on the quasi-urban landscape...More

Has something for everyone-- super nice new playground, walking/ biking trails, dog parks (one for hug and one for small dogs), places to sit by the river, portapotties, water fountains, connections to river accesses and neighborhoods, plenty of parking, cool bridge

I was looking for a place to run as running on the hotel treadmill is a bore. This place is nice and has plenty of people on it to feel safe. It is a little strange how it snakes through neighborhoods and the river but...More

I've enjoyed the greenway since it opened 5+ yrs ago. Connects the downtown common to green springs park( approx. 3.5 miles ) follows along the river. A new section should be opening soon. My understanding the connection will continue from green springs park to Arlington...More
