Once a fairly empty experience (better than the elevated highway but not necessarily worth a visit unless in transit) the Greenway is finally beginning to hit its stride. On a great summer night it’s a reminder of how small the city is and how walkable....More

It is a nice greenway, but nothing all that exciting. We came here by accident. It was nice, but not worth a special trip. Liked the commons area much better.

This area provides an excellent break in the middle of the city. It becomes a great place to people watch and entertain yourself for hours. The green space breaks up the otherwise concrete jungle of the surrounding streets.

Pretty cool to see this area that used to be a highway that divided the city now a nice green space.

Beautiful greenspace to relax and let the kids play while walking through the city. Good place to cool off in the fountain on a hot day, and really cool public art installation with old neon signs.
