Greenway Facts

Following best practices in other communities, the Greenway could serve as an education space with after-school and weekend programs for children, youth and adults.


These Greenway Pioneer Reports were prepared by graduate students in UC Berkeley’s 2010 Urban Design Studio. They tell a story of how communities in the U.S. and abroad have created exciting parks and greenways in a wide variety of settings.

Many of them show how aspects of specific greenways are relevant to Santa Rosa’s Southeast Greenway.

Check them out for visual ideas and a sampling of the types of community benefits that greenway development can offer. Many thanks to the students for sharing these reports.
