Greenways are great places for all types of programs, events and activities – whether it’s an outdoor dance with friends, a book club with your coworkers, a hula hooping contest with your classmates, a birthday party for your grandmother, or a casual stroll with your neighbors! Some greenway spaces are great for large events like a reunion with 100 of your family members. Others are better for a small gathering such as a picnic with a few friends. Others are great for telling your buddy, “Hey, let’s meet here to go for a walk/jog/bike ride/wheelchair roll/stroller roll/rollerblade roll!”
Segments of greenways are operated and maintained by various partners, and some may require a permit to host your event in a space such as a pavilion. All 100+ places are listed below, both in a map and in a table (that can be filtered!), and click on the links next to each greenway location to learn more about getting a permit or reserving a space. There are three spaces operated by Great Rivers Greenway. To apply for a permit to reserved one of these spaces for your event, click on the Special Event Application link below.
