The Great Smoky Mountains Regional Greenway Council is a coalition of local governments, agencies and individuals working together to coordinate, plan and promote greenway construction in the greater Knoxville region.

Our goals are:

  • Advocating and supporting the development and implementation of a system of greenways throughout the region linking to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in order to:

    • Create a positive regional image
    • Enhance tourism
    • Increase outdoor recreation opportunities
    • Provide transportation alternatives
    • Enhance quality of life in the region
    • Protect natural corridors
    • Create new outdoor education opportunities

  • greenwayEstablishment of a public relations/marketing information program to publicize and gain support for regional greenways.

  • Establishment of a network to promote, support, and communicate information and ideas about greenway development through regular scheduled meetings, events, and other forms of communication.
