TR Greenway

Status: Under Construction

UGATA is working closely with the City of Travelers Rest and Greenville County to create a Greenway Connector from Travelers Rest High School to the George I. Theisen Family YMCA. This connection will not only add 2.1 miles of high quality Greenways to the Greenways network but will provide a safe walking path for Travelers Rest’s high school students to access the high quality facilities of the YMCA. UGATA is devoted to help make the Swamp Rabbit better integrated into our communities and this project is a strong step toward achieving that goal.

This Greenway embodies the way UGATA aims to serve the community.  By working together with a host of partners including YMCA of Greenville, School District of Greenville Country, City of Travelers Rest, Greenville County, Arbor Engineering, and local landowners UGATA has completed much of the ground work necessary to make this dream a reality.  Together, we have obtained and recorded easements necessary to build the trail, engaged trail engineers to design the project, negotiated with municipal, county, and state governments to fund the project, and selected a contractor to build.

Construction will begin on May 6th and will open this trail before the end of 2024. We are very excited to have the project in the final staged and are thankful to all the partners that have worked along with us the whole way.
