Looking for an outdoor experience like no other in the area? Look no further - The Greenway is approximately 2,200 acres of natural open space in the heart of Grand Forks, ND and East Grand Forks, MN.

What's your pleasure? The Greenway features several parks, campground, 2 golf courses, 3 disc golf courses, over 20 miles of multi purpose trails, shore bank fishing sites and so much more! Come enjoy this unique opportunity for year-round outdoor recreation right in the heart of our two communities!

The Greenway concept was initially proposed by the North Dakota Congressional Delegation after the flood of 1997. A crucial component of the flood protection project, the Greenway is more than a device for flood mitigation; it is an enhancement to the quality of life for residents of the Greater Grand Forks area.

The Red and Red Lake Rivers Greenway will protect residents of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks from flooding, provide opportunities for economic growth, improve and restore ecological stability of the river corridor, link residents and tourists to four seasons of recreation and transportation facilities, provide linkage between the cities, preserve and promote the history and culture of the region through education, and improve the quality of life for future generations.

Written by workshop participants (residents of Grand Forks, ND and East Grand Forks, MN) and prepared by Greenways, Inc. and the US Army Corps of Engineers as part of the Greenway Plan of September 2001.
