City to expand South Huntsville greenway access

Published on April 28, 2023

The City of Huntsville continues to invest in quality-of-life offerings by expanding its greenway network from South Huntsville to Ditto Landing.

City Council this week authorized Mayor Tommy Battle to enter into a contract with Garver LLC as part of Phase 3 of the Tennessee River Greenway. The contract is for land surveying and engineering design related to the project.

Specifically, the project would add 1.5 miles of new greenway between Hobbs and Green Cove roads and connect the Elgie’s Walk Greenway to Ditto Landing. The final link, along with the Weatherly Road and Aldridge Creek greenway networks, creates a 15-mile greenway loop in South Huntsville.

“When we put together our BIG Picture master plan, investing more in quality-of-life amenities like our greenways was a common recommendation from stakeholders,” said Dennis Madsen, Manager of Urban & Long-Range Planning. “We’ve seen such tremendous growth in South Huntsville over the past few years, particularly around the Ditto Landing area. Providing greenway access is a win-win for anyone who enjoys what Ditto Landing has to offer.”
