Area 3 includes natural areas along Missionary Ridge, Citico Creek, Billy Goat Hill, South Chickamauga Creek, and the Tennessee River. During public meetings, the Area 3 community expressed a need to better connect parks and open space to their neighborhoods. Greenways provide a way to do this.
Greenways are corridors of land recognized for their ability to connect people and places.
These ribbons of open space can be located along rivers and streams or abandoned railroad beds and utility corridors. Below are a few photo examples of parks and greenways.
PARKS, GREENWAYS AND OPEN SPACE: CONCLUSION
Area 3 has several parks and greenways. Different amenities may be needed in some parks. Other parks may need to be better connected to the neighborhoods. New greenways can provide connections between residents and parks, jobs, shopping and schools, providing both green space and alternate transportation for some people.
