The greenways are all paved and wide and for the most part level. They meander along the Roanoke River for miles, often giving a really nice view of the city. There are at least 3 parks along the way with restroom facilities and playgrounds for the kids. You'll find strolling seniors, jogging youngsters, cyclists and Moms with baby strollers. We've never encountered anything but very friendly folks. There is more planned for the future.
