26th Avenue N - Great Northern Greenway

26th avenue north

the west side of the RIVER

Theodore Wirth Parkway to the River

This two mile shared use trail creates a recreational link from Theodore Wirth Parkway to the Mississippi River and its River Overlook. This path traverses the Hawthorne, Jordan and Willard-Hay neighborhoods and is a safe route to reach neighborhood destinations including Nellie Stone Johnson Community School, the Hmong Academy, Farview Park, New Salem Baptist Church and other Houses of Faith.  The Greenway intersects several bikeways including the Grand Rounds, Emerson, Fremont, 2nd st north, the Queen bike boulevard and the future North Minneapolis Greenway.

Soon,  a trail will connect the River Overlook to  Ole Olson Park and West River Road leading to downtown Minneapolis.
