MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – The newest section of the Murfreesboro Greenway was unveiled by partners of the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers and Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation. Watch this ribbon cutting ceremony and other stories in the March edition of “In the City.”


This adds two additional miles of paved greenway trails for pedestrians to enjoy. This newest section increases the paved Corps of Engineers section to now total 5-miles. So why did we mention "for pedestrians". That's because this area of paths in the Walter Hill community, also has 18-miles of equestrian trails. 

MTSU Political Science Professor Kent Syler and chairman of Murfreesboro Park's Special Projects thanked former Congressman Bart Gordon and Murfreesboro Mayor Shane McFarland for their leadership and work to establish the greenway system.  He also credited former Sen. Lamar Alexander and the Corps of Engineers for the latest greenway achievement that will benefit Middle Tennessee.

Syler stated, “I had a chance to get out here and walk this greenway on Saturday. It was nice. And I’ll tell you what – everybody is going to love it. It has some great distance, and appropriately it doesn’t have an end. It has a loop.”

Syler said the greater vision for the greenway is to eventually connect it with the greenway in Smyrna, then LaVergne, and eventually join the system in Nashville.
