Adkisson Greenbelt Park

The proposed 15-mile long Adkisson Greenbelt Park is designed to encircle the city linking neighborhoods, business districts, parks, and schools. The trails that make up the Greenbelt Park offer a 10-foot wide asphalt surface that will easily accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists and meets the American with Disabilities Act standards. Whether you enjoy walking, running, skating, or bicycling for recreation or to reach a destination, the Adkisson Greenbelt Park is an enjoyable and healthy place to be.

The Adkisson Greenbelt Park has recently completed a 2.5 mile section on the city’s west side connecting Shifley Park to Southtown Boulevard. It runs through the MidAmerica Airpark along Carter Road.

The final section will be completed along with the widening of Southtown Boulevard.
