The parks departments of New Albany, Jeffersonville and Clarksville invite the public to Le Tour de Greenway, a family-friendly fun ride on the Ohio River Greenway. Click HERE to see a full map of the event!
Set for Saturday, May 11, from 8 a.m. to noon, this first-ever event is meant to celebrate the full connection of the Greenway, a 7.5-mile multi-use path through the three communities. With the recent opening of a walking bridge across Silver Creek, recreational users can now ride the Greenway from end to end.
Le Tour de Greenway is a joint partnership between the three parks departments, with support from Falls of the Ohio State Park, Ohio River Greenway Commission, Clark-Floyd Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Friends of the Ohio River Greenway.
Le Tour de Greenway is free and open to all ages. Families and individuals are invited to register online or on the morning of the event. Participants will receive a “passport” with information about the Greenway and locations of fun stops along the way. Each community will have three to four stops with fun family activities such as inflatables, music, food, games, and more!
