Downtown Greenway is the new park and also the new popular tourist destination in the city. The lovely space is decked with a lot of plants and greenery, making it not only a visual delight for tourists but also a place to have leisurely walks on and relax. There are many trails in this park that connects the downtown from Beauregard Town. One a fine sunny day, you can come here to enjoy in the lap of nature. The lovely sights and quietude only seem to add to its charm. For families, picnicking can be a great activity to do here. Birdwatchers and shutterbugs can also come here and have fun watching the birds and clicking the pictures. If nothing seems to appeal to you, you can simply lay down and relax under a tree shade, it will be worth it!

Downtown Greenway Reviews & Ratings
This is a great asset I like to use after work. It runs from 5th Street to the interstate (9th Street) down the middle of North Boulevard. It's a paved and illuminated bike trail and a parallel gravel walking path. There are benches, a workout station, and water fountains. I believe this is the first phase of a bike trail that will eventually connect Memorial Stadium to City Park via Expressway Park. I think it will then hook up with the Ward's Creek trail that's connecting Quail Drive, Kenilworth Park, the medical corridor, the mall, and Siegen Lane. Can't wait! For now, an older trail continues east on the other side of the interstate down the median to the Trevor Simms overpass, where a bike lane shifts to the sides of the overpass before ending (abruptly) just before 19th Street, where the sharrows start. Be careful not to enter traffic without double checking for speeding cars. You can also continue west to the levee trail, which connects downtown with LSU and Farr Park.
