Maline Greenway

Bella Fontaine County Park

This stretch of the Maline Greenway lies primarily within Bella Fontaine County Park. It is the first segment of a planned seven mile, east-west link that will connect the Mississippi and St. Vincent Greenways.  This greenway links both sides of Bella Fontaine County Park via an underpass beneath Highway 367/Lewis & Clark Boulevard. You can walk, ride, push a stroller or use a wheelchair along Maline Creek and spend a few minutes relaxing on one of the benches along the way.
