Green days on the Greenway

 - by julie

I absolutely love the 22 acres of Greenway (along the Red River) in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks!  I spent a lot of time biking it this weekend.  My daughter kept saying things like “isn’t it beautiful here?”, “we should spend all day on the Greenway” and “can we build a house on the Greenway?”.  Once I explained we couldn’t build a house on the Greenway, she was OK, but she still wanted to spend all day there.

It is so great to know in any season the Greenway is available for use by visitors and residents alike at absolutely no charge.  The biking is always fun on the trails, and you can also roller blade (get in training for the first-ever Rollin’ on the River Inline Marathon), run, walk, etc. in the summer.  The Greenway features several parks, campground, two golf courses, three disc golf courses, more than 20 miles of multi purpose trails, shore bank fishing sites, canoeing, dog park and more.

There are a number of businesses that have equipment available for rent to use on the Greenway, but I do think we need to figure out a way to have bike rentals available on site, so visitors can check out this great amenity even when not prepared.  Maybe that is something for our team to pursue.

Would you like a bike rental available on site?  What do you love about the Greenway?
