“The Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage is a walking/jogging/biking trail along the Pigeon Creek and the Ohio Riverfront. The Greenway Passage winds through the heart of Evansville. The 10-foot wide paved trail showcases the creek and the banks of the Ohio River in downtown as it connects neighborhoods and parks, business districts and nature areas. The Greenway is a safe and scenic place where you can run, skate, ride your bike or wheelchair, exercise your dog, stroll your baby, enjoy a leisurely walk or train for an upcoming marathon. The Greenway will eventually encircle the city. To date, it is completed in sections that total 6.75 miles.”
