Connecting people and places in Springfield since 1991

Greenways trails (also called "linear parks") preserved ribbons of nature throughout Springfield that typically follow stream corridors, and sometimes abandoned railroad right-of-way. These hard-surfaced paths have minimal grade and provide free public access for non-motorized uses; bicycling, walking, running, skating and wheelchair access.

Ozark Greenways is a public-private partnership working closely with both private supporters and governmental agencies in order to make Springfield's greenway trail network a reality. Planning, advocacy, fundraising, easement acquisition, construction, promotion, public education and urban forestry stewardship are all activities of Ozark Greenways.
