Once it's complete, you could run a full marathon on the Joe Louis Greenway… and then some. You could bike it and pass through 23 neighborhoods, four cities, and a smattering of art installations. You could walk it and veer off to go shopping for gifts or groceries, or you could stop and stare out at Canada across the Detroit River.
The City of Detroit's Joe Louis Greenway is and will be far more than just a trail to get your exercise on. It will be a place that connects communities, strengthens neighborhoods, protects nature, and gives people more options to get to where they want conveniently and safely.
And although it has a few more years of construction to go, its fans believe the Joe Louis could be the national standard for greenways, which are designated, protected paths used for both travel and environmental protection.
Among the greenway's first and most consistent supporters are Todd Scott and Mark Wallace, leaders of member groups Detroit Greenways Coalition and Detroit Riverfront Conservancy respectively. Christina Peltier, of the City of Detroit, has been instrumental in seeing the Joe Louis Greenway's construction through.
Join them and Environmental Council President & CEO Conan Smith as they share the history of the Joe Louis Greenway from infancy to eventual completion and what it will mean for the people that use it or live by it.
