About the New Springville Greenway:

Construction of the 3.2 mile New Springville Greenway was completed in the summer of 2015. This pedestrian/cycling path is located along the eastern edge of Freshkills Park, with views that include the slopes of East Mound as well as tidal wetlands and palustrine wetland forests. The north/south bike path creates a green recreational corridor along the busy thoroughfare of Richmond Avenue and extends from Arthur Kill Road to the south all the way north to Travis Avenue and from there to Signs Road. The natural systems along the route can be appreciated while riding or while sitting at the observation deck near Nome Avenue.
