What is a Greenway
A Greenway is a long, narrow piece of land, often used for recreation and pedestrian and bicycle traffic. The term greenway comes from the “green” in green belt and the “way” in parkway implying a recreational or pedestrian use rather than a typical street corridor, as well as an emphasis on introducing or maintaining vegetation, in a location where such vegetation is otherwise lacking. Some greenways include community gardens as well as typical park-style landscaping of trees and shrubs. They also tend to have a mostly contiguous pathway, allowing urban commuting via bicycle or foot.
