Historical Note

The Greenways Foundation formed in 1991 with a vision of an interconnected network of trails serving Central Indiana. It is a nonprofit organization working to promote the growth, enhancement, and use of Indiana greenways. For many years, the Foundation operated primarily within Indianapolis and Marion County.

The Greenways Foundation played a major and ongoing role with the city of Indianapolis to establish the Monon Trail. As that trail became an overwhelming success with the citizens of Central Indiana, trails were seen as vital and necessary community amenities, and interest spread throughout the state. This interest led the Foundation to expand its geographic focus in 2006 to encompass all of Indiana.
