Our vision for the Mounds Greenway looks like this:
- Conserve the free-flowing West Fork White River and its floodplain forests, wetlands and other natural communities by creating a high quality linear park following the river.
- Conserve and enhance the historic and cultural resources in the river valley.
- Connect trails in Muncie and Anderson and build a regional recreational network that eventually will stretch throughout east central Indiana, and to central Indiana via a greenway extension along the White River to Indianapolis.
- Create economic opportunity by enhancing the region’s quality of place and stimulating entrepreneurial investment.
An easy way to learn about the Mounds Greenway is to see it and hear from our neighbors and advocates. Watch these short, locally produced videos and take a look at our photo gallery to get an idea of why people love the White River corridor and the Mounds Greenway.
The Mounds Greenway is part of a larger nationwide movement that seeks to improve quality of place, connect people and places, and restore our relationship to nature and outdoor recreation, along river and rail corridors in particular. We’ve collected national and Hoosier state stories and case studies to strengthen the case for connecting greenways.
We have a growing list of mayors, town managers, philanthropic organizations and businesses that support the Mounds Greenway. View the lists and read the letters of support.
Did you know the one-time property value benefits of a greenway, in Delaware and Madison Counties, is estimated at $32.7 million? This is one of the findings of the professional architecture and planning firm that conducted an environmental, health and wellness, and economic benefits study of the Mounds Greenway.
