Linden Green Line

About the Linden Green Line

The Linden Green Line is an innovative project that will transform a 7-mile corridor of abandoned railway into a vibrant 58-acre linear park and trail, accessible to over 131,000 people who live within minutes of walking and cycling distance. This innovative park will reunite disconnected communities and advance revitalization projects already in progress.

The Linden Green Line bisects the heart of South Linden, North Linden, and Northland communities, starting from Windsor Place, near downtown, to Cooper Park on the city’s north side. The line travels close to the CMAX Bus Rapid Transit route and the two major arterial roadways of the Linden community: the Cleveland Avenue 3-C highway and  Westerville Road (SR-3).
