What is a Greenway?

For some residents of Longmont and those in surrounding areas, a greenway (extended trail) serves as a sanctuary--an oasis from the noise and pace of everyday life. For others, it serves as an alternative to sharing the streets with motorized vehicles.

Weaving through parks and alongside rivers, creeks, ditches, and lakes, greenways protect neighboring wildlife areas, while also providing opportunities for both environmental and recreational activities. Additionally, greenways serve as maintenance access for storm drainage functions throughout our city.

The Dry Creek Greenway runs west from Willow Farm Neighborhood Park (at Fordham Street) to Grandview Meadows Drive (near Silver Creek High School). Further west, the trail runs from Blue Skies Neighborhood Park to North 75th Street.

As development continues, the Dry Creek Greenway will link the two existing trail segments within Dry Creek Community Park (west of Grandview Meadows Drive and east of Mountain Drive). This Greenway will eventually connect to Village at the Peaks at Hover Street. Other facilities found along this greenway include: Eagle Crest Elementary School, Altona Middle School, Silver Creek High School and Blue Mountain Elementary School. Dry Creek Greenway opens to several detention pond sites that are also part of the Longmont park system.
