The Lindsay Pettus Greenway is an outdoor venue designed to inspire Lancaster County's next generation of conservationists.

The trail is a safe space to enjoy being  active outdoors. City Police monitor the trail  and the Public Works department cleans trail facilities regularly. 

Crosswalks, pedestrian signs, and mile markers are in place along the trail. In an emergency, it is important to call 911 for medical or law-enforcement response.



Field trips, beautification events, and nature walks are offered in collaboration with Lancaster County School District, Katawba Valley Land Trust, Keep Lancaster County Beautiful, and the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation.


We partner with the Lancaster County Council of the Arts to set artistic standards and commission local artists to create delightful "pause moments" that inspire Greenway visitors to value our community's natural beauty.
