Tell Your Friends About This Project
Greenway Park is a much loved and well-used part of the community. It has had a number of additions and changes over the years, but had no consistent guiding vision. THPRD started a concept planning process in fall 2017 that included both Greenway Park and adjacent Koll Center Wetlands. Open houses were held on 11/7/17, 3/20/18, and 5/17/18 to better understand the needs and interests of park users.
A final plan was created based on public meeting outcomes, THPRD management, and board of directors feedback in August 2018. The plan (which can be found in the documents section on the right side of this page) will be implemented in phases as funding becomes available. A study to improve the crossing at Scholls Ferry Road was done and public meetings about the crossing were held in 2019. In summer 2023 the Scholls Ferry undercrossing was raised to reduce water intrusion.
A grant was received to add and ADA-accessible signalized crossing at Scholls Ferry Road. The project is in the design phase and is expected to be constructed in summer 2025.
Permanent restrooms are in the design phase and are expected to be constructed in summer 2024.
Staff continue to provide ongoing maintenance services at the park. In developed areas, this includes mowing, trash removal, asphalt maintenance, playground safety inspections, sport court maintenance, and portable toilet cleaning. In natural areas, staff continue to remove weeds and respond to wildlife inquiries.
