Art on the Greenway

Permanent art installations are unfolding through a beautiful partnership with the Lancaster County Council of the Arts. All art will point visitors towards our mutual mission of highlighting the beauty of our natural resources here in our local region.  Find the most recent public art installations at the Woodland Drive tunnel underpass, commissioned by the LCCA and created by muralist Amiri Farris.

Connectivity

The first two miles of the Lindsay Pettus Greenway connects people to places, including: downtown Lancaster, four nearby schools (North Elementary, Clinton Elementary, Lancaster High, and Barr Street Learning Center), as well as many local businesses and neighborhoods.

Future phases of the Greenway will connect to MUSC Health Lancaster Medical Center, Springdale Recreation Center, and the Lancaster County Health Department.

A segment of the Carolina Thread Trail

The Lindsay Pettus Greenway is proud to be a segment of the Carolina Thread Trail. The Thread Trail is a developing regional network of greenways, trails and blueways that reaches 2.3 million people in 15 counties in North and South Carolina. There are over 260 miles of trails and 170 miles of blueway open to the public – linking people, places, cities, towns and attractions. The Thread Trail preserves our natural areas and is a place for exploration of nature, culture, science and history. This is a landmark project that provides public and community benefits for everyone, in every community.
