Mobile Greenway Trail Going from Rendering to Reality
Apr 11th, 2017
The Mobile Greenway, a walking and biking trail that will run along Three Mile Creek, will soon be a reality. The City Council this morning voted on contracts to begin work on the first phase of the project that will eventually connect Langan Park to Downtown Mobile.
“Today is a great day in District 1 and the City of Mobile,” said Councilman Fred Richardson, who represents the area where the project will start. “Thanks to the many individuals and organizations who lent their vision and support, we are finally taking this project from rendering to reality.”
The first leg of the trail will run along the north side of Three Mile Creek from Tricentennial Park to West Ridge Road. The path will include a fitness zone, landscaping, solar lighting, benches, a kayak launch and educational signage.
“This trail will be an incredible amenity and transformative for our city,” said Council President Gina Gregory. “This partnership is an investment in Mobile’s future.”
The project is being funded through Capital Improvement Plan funds, a grant from the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs and the City.
