Greenways Plan

A greenway is a corridor of protected open space that is managed for conservation and/or recreation.

The common characteristic of greenways is that they all go somewhere and follow natural land or water features. Greenways can provide a link between special destinations such as schools, parks, commercial centres, recreation centres and any other location where people often go, and encourage people to walk, cycle or use some other form of non-motorized transportation.

The City's greenways vision is "to provide a superb, human-scaled, people-friendly environment so that pedestrians, cyclists and other non-motorized users will be rewarded with a safe, enjoyable and engaging experience as they use greenways".

The Greenways Plan identifies the harbour pathway as the highest priority for development – to link and open new areas of the Inner Harbour to public access and to create a preeminent public space.
