Important message from Cher

Ozark Greenways is a citizen group working to develop Springfield's network of greenway trails and on-street bike routes.

Springfield has 68 miles of greenways, and 72 miles of on-street bike routes!

There's something for everyone regardless of age, abilities or interests. Whether you're new to the trails and routes, or you stay up on the latest additions to the network, these facilties play a crucial role in our community's personal and environmental health, economic vitality and quality of life. We could go on and on about the benefits, from protecting our air and drinking water supply to addressing our obesity epidemic. Best of all? They're fun!

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.
