Making Connections

The Detroit Greenways Coalition is working to connect with the Downriver Linked Greenways trails. Connections are underway along Fort Street and Schaefer roads between Detroit and River Rouge.

Detroit Greenways Coalition

The Detroit Greenways Coalition (DGC) works to promote and build a network of greenways, Complete Streets, and bike lanes that will connect people and places, improve the quality of life, beautify neighborhoods, and stimulate neighborhood-level economic development in Detroit.


  • Provide a collective voice for greenway planning, development and maintenance throughout the city.
  • Share best practices, lessons learned and strengthen communication.
  • Plan physical links between existing greenways.
  • Solve operational challenges such as insurance and maintenance.
  • Raise funds for construction, maintenance, and programming.
  • Advocate for policy change in government that would support greenway efforts.

Current DGC trails include:

  • Joe Louis Greenway
  • May Creek Greenway
  • Rouge River Greenway
  • Greater RiverFront East District
