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.

Overview

The Left Hand Greenway trail is in place from the St. Vrain Creek to Hover Street. The trail connects to the Longmont Recreation Center and Longmont Museum, Kanemoto Neighborhood Park and Left Hand Creek Neighborhood Park--all located along Left Hand Creek. Named after Chief Niwot (translated from the Arapaho language as "left hand"), the creek flows from Left Hand Canyon through south Longmont, where mature willow and cottonwood trees grace its banks.
