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.

On June 5, 2004, the Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage was designated a National Recreation Trail by the National Parks Service. This prestigious award designated the Greenway as a component of a larger national trail system that stretches across the United States.

The Greenway will eventually encircle the city. To date, it is completed in sections that total 6.75 miles.
