The Greenway is approximately 2,200 acres of natural open space in the heart of East Grand Forks, MN and Grand Forks, ND. The Greenway features several parks, campground, 2 golf courses, 3 disc golf courses, over 20 miles of multi purpose trails, shore bank fishing sites and so much more!
The Greenway consists of 2,200 acres lining the Red River and the Red Lake River as they flow through Grand Forks and East Grand Forks. This picturesque urban space offers countless recreational, cultural, historical and natural resource opportunities. You can hike, walk, run, rollerblade, bike, bird, canoe, kayak, fish or golf, all in the heart of our two cities. Now fully completed, the Greenway includes an all-season trail system, nature preserves, picnic sites and camping areas.
A few unique things the Greenway offers are:
Disc golf courses - one in Lincoln Drive Park and the other, a new 12-hole course, just off Bygland Road, across from Eagle Point Trail Head, in East Grand Forks
Dog park - located Lincoln Drive Park; offers dog owners a safe, legal opportunity to exercise their pet off-leash, within the city limits (view map)
Natural play area for kids - approximately 150 square feet in size; features balance beams, climbing ropes, benches and decorative arches; located in a grove of trees, along the lower trail, in the area commonly referred to as Sunbeam (just north of 47th Avenue South)
The Greenway concept was initially proposed by the North Dakota Congressional Delegation after the flood of 1997. A crucial component of the flood protection project, the Greenway is more than a device for flood mitigation; it is an enhancement to the quality of life for residents of the Greater Grand Forks area.
