Montevallo Greenway



        Montevallo Greenway

            The Montevallo Greenway is a trail that is being constructed to connect Orr Park, Downtown Business District, University of Montevallo and the University Lake Recreation Area


            The 2 mile trail begins at the existing Orr Park asphalt walking and biking trail at its closest approach to Island Street near the junction of Island Street and Middle Street. Public restrooms are available along the existing Orr Park trail near the beginning of the Greenway. Though the Greenway itself is not wheelchair accessible over the majority of its length, the majority of the Orr Park trail is and there will be access points that may accommodate wheelchair activities.

            Wooded Area

            The Greenway is a diverse experience with wooded areas featuring beaver dams and direct access to Shoal and King Creeks, making excellent habitats for muskrat, wood duck and kingfishers. The trail also passes through University of Montevallo recreational fields. The future goal is for the Greenway to connect Orr Park with Stephens Park. The Greenway features a combination of sidewalks and natural surfaces including some difficult inclines.
            The Trail has not been sanctioned by VolksMarch.
