Lake Jackson Greenway


The Lake Jackson Greenway Project will create a 5.1-mile multimodal connection from Lake Ella to Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological State Park. This project has two phases that will provide connectivity to neighborhoods and several existing parks through sidewalks, on-street cycle routes, and shared-use paths for bicyclists, pedestrians and other non-motorized users. The Lake Jackson Greenway Project will improve the safety and connectivity of pedestrians and cyclists.

Pedestrian and cyclist improvements include intersection safety treatments, lighting, crosswalks and, rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs) in key locations (Tharpe Street, Dellwood Drive and Bradford Road).

Phase I of the project will create a connection from Lake Ella to Trousdell Aquatic & Gymnastics Center through sidewalks and on-street cycle routes. Construction began in July 2023 on the stormwater portion and the sidewalk implementation on Pinewood Drive, creating a connection from Dellwood Drive to Delta Way. Construction is anticipated to begin in the first quarter of 2024 on the Glenview Drive sidewalk.

Phase II of the project will create a connection between Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological State Park and Trousdell Aquatic & Gymnastics Center. Okeeheepkee Prairie Park will connect to Meginnis Arm via the Lake Jackson Blueway.

Additional segments of the sidewalk on Pinewood Drive and Glenview Drive are anticipated through the City of Tallahassee’s sidewalk program. Pinewood Drive from Delta Blvd. to Meridian Road is in the City of Tallahassee’s current Capital Improvement Project plan and is estimated to go into construction in 2026. Glenview Drive is on the City’s current Sidewalk Prioritization list.
