Bicycle riding is allowed on some greenways.

A Greenway is a corridor of open space.

A "greenway" is a corridor of open space. Not all greenways are alike. 

Some greenways are solely for resource protection.  Such a greenway might include a wide, vegetated buffer along a stream.  This type of greenway acts as a natural filter to help keep our water clean.  It may also provide habitat for wildlife, and linkages for them to move safely from one part of town to another. 

Another type of greenway might be an undisturbed treed buffer along a scenic road that would help maintain our town’s rural character. 

Some greenways can also be used for recreation. Types of recreational trails might be a simple foot path (for hiking or birding or access to fishing areas) or a trail for horseback riding, or a more formal path for walking and non-motorized vehicles such as bicycles.  

The creation of any type of greenway will only happen if there is support from the community.
