About The Richmond Greenway

Beginning in 1904, the Atchison-Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad (AT&SF) carried freight through the city of Richmond, reaching its height during World War II when Richmond became a national leader of wartime industry and the woman’s labor movement. This same corridor, which has sat unused in the heart of Richmond for more than 25 years, has begun a transformation into the Richmond Greenway.

The Richmond Greenway is a three-mile community bicycle and pedestrian rail-trail that will also bring 32 new acres of vibrant open space to a densely populated, underserved community with few recreational opportunities and scarce green space. The Richmond Greenway will soon provide pedestrian and bicycle access to other regional trails, and make key connections with community resources and public transportation.
