Lake Jackson Greenway

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Lake Jackson Greenway Project will create a 5.1-mile multimodal connection from Lake Ella to Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological State Park. The project will provide sidewalks, trails, and shared-use paths for bicyclists, pedestrians and other non-motorized users connecting neighborhoods to several existing parks. The project improves the safety of pedestrians and cyclists.

Segment A will create a connection between Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological State Park and Parwez “PA” Alam Park at Okeeheepkee Prairie Preserve. Together with available blueways, Segment B will connect Okeeheepkee Prairie Park with Lake Ella adding a combination of on-street cycle routes, separated trails, and shared-use paths.

Proposed project amenities include the addition of a paddle craft launch at Meginnis Arm Landing, seating at key locations, hardscape and landscape features at several intersections and points of connection resulting in a unique identity for the trail.

Project manager: Sue Tanski
