Connect the Putnam Trail
The Putnam Trail will be a greenway that will run from Van Cortlandt Park's northern border to West 230 Street (a block from Broadway). It will accommodate cyclists, walkers, runners, skaters and those wheelchair bound.
This trail once renovated will connect the Bronx greenway system to the South County Trail in Westchester. It will also connect to Manhattan's Hudson River Greenway via the East Coast Greenway on-street bike route.
In the future, there are plans to connect this trail to the proposed Harlem River Greenway which will run down the waterfront into the South Bronx.
Note, this trail will provide opportunities for healthy outdoor activity to more people (immediately).
East Coast Greenway Alliance
