Richland Creek Greenway set for summer, not spring


According to yesterday's Tennessean, it may be summer, rather than spring, before the second phase of the Richland Creek Greenway is complete:

By summer, greenway users will be able to enjoy the entire 2.8-mile length of the trail, which runs alongside the railroad, snakes its way through the trees along Richland Creek and hugs the edge of McCabe Park Golf Course.

"It depends on the weather, but we're really trying to get it done this spring," says Shain Dennison, Greenways director with Metro Board of Parks & Recreation. When it's finished, the greenway will link neighborhoods with commercial areas and offer users a pleasant place to enjoy the outdoors close to home...

The second segment [of the greenway] will follow Richland Creek along the edge of the golf course to a trailhead near Wyoming Avenue, with a spur trail going to the Target/Lions Head Village shopping area.

Go see the rest of the article for additional details and historical information about the greenway.
