Greenways

The Trust for Public Land is working with the City of Chattanooga to complete a segment of greenway along the creek corridor from Camp Jordan to the Tennessee River.

In 2004, The Trust for Public Land purchased ten acres on a sweeping bend in the Buffalo Bayou for a new waterfront park, providing the crowded East End of Houston with access to this historic waterway.

More than 46 acres of land in Upper Freehold Township will be added to a growing greenbelt around the historic Borough of Allentown, New Jersey.

TPL played a key role in creating the Tennessee Riverwalk, part of Chattanooga's greenway and trail system, which runs through downtown and along a revitalized riverfront, crossing the Walnut Street Bridge, and ending at a fishing park below Chickamauga Dam.

Much of our Parks for People-Denver program focuses on the South Platte River, where land that used to be taken up by industrial development is being offered for sale.

The Marks Creek Rural Lands Initiative is a public/private collaboration between TPL, the Triangle Land Conservancy (a Raleigh-based land trust), and Wake County.

The Trust for Public Land's Carolina Thread Trail (CTT) is a network of trails and greenways that will eventually connect 15 counties and 2.3 million citizens in North and South Carolina, linking people, places, cities, towns and attractions.

The Trust for Public Land protected a 30-acre property that has been added to South River Greenway, a new park and greenway formed from the former grounds of Crownsville State Hospital.

In October, 2006 The Trust for Public Land protected 318 waterfront acres along the Patuxent River, just 12 miles from Washington, D.C.

The Trust for Public Land's Maryland Community Rivers program focuses on the western Chesapeake Bay shoreline and tributaries of the state's four major river systems—the Gunpowder, Patuxent, Patapsco, and Potomac.
