The Greenway Trail started with Phase I off North Seventh Street, across from the Serenity Center, traveling to the bridge at East Main. Now the trail, that did end at the bridge/Stratton Park loops back to Main Street underneath the East Washington bridge. The expansion was paid for by City of Shelbyville through the restaurant tax proceeds.
Foundation consultant Clay Cottongim acknowledges all those who have donated toward both phases, especially Barry Campbell for clearing both trails for blacktopping. Now planning begins for Phase III, with the ultimate goal having the Greenway Trail follow Clear Creek to Red Orchard Park on Kentucky Street.
Individuals wanting to help the Foundation can contact Cottongim at 502-321-0612 or send donations to Greenway Trail, c/o Parks Foundation, 717 Burks Branch Road, Shelbyville KY 40065.
