The Glen Park Greenway is a green corridor that runs through the heart of the Glen Park neighborhood, connecting Glen Park’s transit hub and urban village to the many recreation opportunities throughout Glen Canyon Park.
In the 1960s, the political activism of local women stopped the construction of the Crosstown Freeway through this corridor. This produced abandoned open space that the community has since adopted as a useful pedestrian route. The space was initially overgrown and a site of unwanted activity, but in 2012 the Glen Park Association took up the project, built community consensus around a concept plan, and got the Greenway designated as a Street Park.
Now, the group actively works to enrich the natural habitat of the Greenway, improve the trail and add a little joy to the heart of Glen Park!
