Springfield Greenway - Search Nearby - Added by David Garner

The scenic Springfield Greenway meanders along a lush tree-lined creek in northern Springfield, just a half hour north of Nashville. The pathway is paved, flat and smooth, making for easy walking or riding, and has only one street crossing.

Parks at either end (Garner Street Park on the west side and J. Travis Price Park on the east side) provide restrooms, picnic areas, playgrounds and athletic fields.

Directions:
From Nashville, take 431 north (Whites creek Pike/Tom Austin Highway). Make a left onto 41 (Memorial Boulevard). Make a left (turn west) onto 5th Avenue. Turn right (north) on N. Garner Street and continue until you reach Garner Street Park (200 N. Garner Street). A parking lot is available in the park and the trailhead is next to the lot.

At the eastern end of the trail, a parking lot is available at J. Travis Price Park (4155 Wilkes Road).

This is a great greenway!

I have lived in Springfield for two years. My family and I love the Springfield Greenway. It connects several great parks! It is well kept and follows a beautiful creek. It is better than many cities this size have. I highly recommend visiting the greenway!
