Legacy Parks is working with a consortium of local and regional government and non-profit agencies to advance the Maryville-to-Townsend Greenway Expansion in Blount County, Tenn. Currently playing a coordination role, Legacy Parks is helping lead the effort to gather community engagement, refine the Greenway route and create a funding strategy.
You can participate in this exciting effort by sharing your greenway photos on social media with #LoveMyGreenway and from Sept. 27 through Nov. 10, you can win prizes by submitting your photos to the sweepstakes website.
The proposed Maryville-to-Townsend Greenway is a two-phase project set to develop over the next few years, and will provide 14 miles of trail connecting Maryville to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This is part of a larger regional effort to link pedestrians and cyclists from Knoxville to the Smokies through a greenway trail.
Carol Evans, executive director of Legacy Parks Foundation joined Ellen Zavisca of the Knoxville Regional Transportation Organization at Tourism Day to outline key aspects of the project.
