Reconnecting with Nature this Summer

Residents throughout Lancaster County are finding time in nature to be good for their physical and mental health, and for reconnecting with the outside world. A vibrant natural world continues to offer refuge and enjoyment and will continue to be here for all of us.

While we await the day of the Lindsay Pettus Greenway's grand opening (coming soon in Fall 2020!), we want to connect your family to outdoor activities from our regional partners that can serve to remind you how valuable the natural world is.

The Lindsay Pettus Greenway will be a 5 mile hard-surface trail system that weaves through neighborhoods, schools, parks, health facilities, and the downtown district within the City of Lancaster. Phase 1 is the first 2 miles of this trail system.

The Benefits

Greenways and trails have been shown to improve health, attract business, boost tourism, bring people together, increase mobility, and help the environment.
