The Garden City Greenway provides the first pedestrian/bicycle connection from Garden City to the existing regional greenway network at the Roanoke River Greenway and supports future connections to the Mill Mountain Greenway, Star Trail, and Blue Ridge Parkway. The project will build a trail connection from Davenport/Ivywood Street to the connection with the Roanoke River Greenway at Riverland Road. Garden City lacked continuous pedestrian infrastructure. Under a recent Safe Routes to School grant, the first phase of the Greenway was constructed between Yellow Mountain Road and Davenport/Ivywood Streets. A recently opened bridge was constructed for the connection of the Garden City Greenway with the Roanoke River Greenway. Completion of the Garden City Greenway trail to connect between the bridge and the Safer Routes to Schools was completed in Winter of 2018.
