The Richmond Greenway is a pedestrian and bicycle path in Richmond, California.[1]

History[edit]

It runs along what was formerly the right-of way of the Santa Fe Railroad parallel to Ohio Street, between the end of the Ohlone Greenway adjacent to the intersection of Macdonald and San Pablo Avenues, and Point Richmond.[1] There is a connector from the trail to the Macdonald 80 Shopping Center in the North & East neighborhood. The trail is landscaped with community gardens, native vegetation, daylighted portions of Baxter Creek, and an artificial creek channel used to filter pollution along its frontage.[1]

In the future, it may connect in Point Richmond with a bikeway through Point Molate. Pedestrian bridges may be added in the future to cross major avenues such as San Pablo Avenue and 23rd Street.

An additional side project will add a bike lane/bike trail between the Richmond Greenway and the Ohlone Greenway at Potrero Avenue via 23rd Street, Carlson Boulevard, Cutting Boulevard, and Potrero.[2]
