Join us for the next Greenway Beautification Event
Saturday, October 24th | 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Want to get a sneak peek of the Lindsay Pettus Greenway before it opens to the public? Our next Greenway Beautification event will be hosted by Keep Lancaster County Beautiful on Saturday, October 24th from 9 am - 12 noon. We'll plant red maple and pink dogwood trees along the trail, as well as pick up trash along Gills Creek. Our hardworking creek will be grateful for the tender loving care ... and so will we!

The Capital Project Sales Tax

Lancaster County friends: A vote in favor of renewing the 1% Capital Project Sales Tax on November 3rd is a great way to support the Lindsay Pettus Greenway.  Learn more about the specifics by clicking here.

Thank you for Riversweep warriors!

Our rockstar team of 50+ volunteers pulled out grocery carts, a bike, garbage bins, plastic bottles, and lots of other rusted junk from Gills Creek -- our  amazing local watershed.  This will certainly become an annual community event!

Opening Soon!

We are awaiting the day to open the new Lindsay Pettus Greenway here in Lancaster County. It's sure to be the coolest boardwalk in town.  Until then, we want to remind our curious and enthusiastic residents that our greenway is still under active construction and should not be visited until it is officially open. Feel free to enjoy many other nearby trails in the Charlotte region by visiting this trail map from Carolina Thread Trail.

Outdoor Classroom construction

During this unusual season, residents throughout Lancaster County are deepening their connection with nature. A vibrant natural world continues to offer refuge, solace, and enjoyment. We envision the Lindsay Pettus Greenway to be a place where everyone is able to experience the rich benefits of the outdoors.

Phase 1 Route

The Lindsay Pettus Greenway will be a 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 the 6-mile 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.

Trails attract tourists and create the kind of quality of life that promotes business and puts money into local economies.

Trails support an active lifestyle that improves the public's health. Physical activity helps prevent heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity, colon cancer, and depression.



Trails connect people to neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and other places of interest. Trails foster community and can help bridge divides.



Trails can help improve air and water quality by providing enjoyable options for non-motorized transportation that reduce air pollution while helping manage soil erosion caused by road runoff.
