What is Ozark Greenways?
Formed in 1991, OG is a 501c3 non-profit group of private citizens in greater Springfield, Missouri, working to preserve the Ozarks' natural heritage for public use and enjoyment by developing a greenway trail network. Once each trail section is built in Greene County, it becomes part of the Springfield-Greene County Park Department's wonderful park system. OG also helps promote Public Works' growing on-street bike route system.
Greenways are linear park trails preserving ribbons of nature throughout the urban area, typically following stream corridors or abandoned railroad right-of-way. These hard-surfaced paths have minimal grade and provide free public access for non-motorized uses; bicycling, walking, running, skating and wheelchairs.
