Greenways are connecting people to destinations throughout Greensboro. When the downtown greenway, one of more than 10, is complete, it will create a four-mile loop around the heart of downtown connecting to other trails/ greenways, businesses, universities and neighborhoods. "This greenway will be a 'ring of green' around the central business district linking LeBauer and Center City parks to historic Fisher Park, a garden in its own right," said Callaway.
