Central Ohio Greenways
The Central Ohio Greenways are over 230 miles of multi-use trail providing opportunities for transportation, exercise and connection to recreational and cultural spaces for Central Ohio residents and visitors. They also preserve green spaces and promote habitat connectivity. The Central Ohio Greenways are a regional effort and collaboration across Central Ohio municipalities. The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission and Central Ohio Greenways Board provide support to the coordinated effort. Columbus Recreation and Parks Department designs, builds and manages the Greenway trails within the City of Columbus. Franklin County Metro Parks provides daily oversight for many sections of the Greenway trails within the City.
