“Well Done!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

The greenway is well done, especially considering ir was done by the government! Seems like every time we use it, there are more places to dine.

“Great, just not enough of it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Great to just walk and enjoy. Just have to be careful with those discourteous people on bicycles and sometimes runner, but then it is for everyone. Just share it for all.

“Good Now. Will be Great in the Future”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

The Greenway is a great addition to the revitalization of Roanoke with good bikeways, athletic fields, and walking. Yes, do watch out for the cyclists. Roanoke is still getting used to this new thing and courtesy and care for pedestrians still needs some work. New housing, more mature plantings, and more exercise locations will happen over the years.

The vistas combine rivers, tall trees,the hills surrounding Roanoke and factories, railroad tracks, and the backyards of unattractive houses. It is an urbanscape - get used to it.

“Greenways are great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The best part about the greenway is being able to get from place to place without car smog and fear of being hit by cars. The worst part about the greenway is that people let their dogs off the leash, so if your running or biking, beware.

“Finally my tax dollars are spent on something worthwile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I will say this. me and my family LOVE the greenway. It provides a safe AND scenic place to go biking. pretty much accessible from any part of town and they are always expanding it. In my opinion, one of the best bike paths in the area.
