Greenways Vision (excerpts)

The vision for a new network of greenways in the Greater Riverfront East District of Detroit emerged from the desire to use greenways to connect the diverse neighborhoods of the area to each other and to the city's magnificent natural asset, the Detroit River.

A greenway is a path reserved for pedestrians, joggers, and bicyclists. In urban places, greenways also serve as recreational venues, safe haven from vehicular traffic, and linkages that connect communities to each other.
