Mayor Indya Kincannon and council members will officially open the new Northwest Greenway Connector with a ribbon-cutting at 2 p.m. today (06/13) at the trailhead to the connector in Victor Ashe Park.

The connector is a $1.7 million project in District 3, represented by council member Seema Singh.

This half-mile pathway is strategically important, according to a city press release. It connects Western Avenue and Victor Ashe Park and links 8.9 miles of greenways and sidewalks around the park with another 7.2 miles of sidewalks on Western Avenue and Schaad Road.

Mayor Kincannon will discuss the next steps in further building out the greenway to connect even more residents and destinations.

Monday’s ribbon-cutting will take place at the trailhead to the connector inside Victor Ashe Park, the “T” where the Northwest Greenway Connector meets the Victor Ashe Greenway (map attached). Parking is available near the park’s small pavilion, located 1/3 mile from the trailhead and accessible via the ADA-accessible Victor Ashe Greenway.
