River Link


The Goal:

  • Better connect our neighborhoods

  • Improve our travel and mobility

  • Spur economic development

  • And elevate our overall quality of life

The newly formed Friends of the Greenway Trail Fund at the Community foundation is leveraging the strengths of what Columbus has built already, capitalizing on the Alternative Transportation Plan, and partnering with the City to offer an even bigger opportunity.

We are working with the nonprofit PATH Foundation, which over 22 years has designed and built more than 230 miles of off-road trail networks in and around Georgia for walkers, runners, cyclists and skaters.

Recently, PATH presented their initial design for an interconnected linear park trail network throughout Columbus connecting the Fall Line Trace to the RiverWalk and much, much more! Below is additional information on PATH’s recommendation, including the presentation they gave at a public meeting on July 13, as well as the master plan.
