The Salisbury Greenway provides connections between recreational areas, parks and natural areas. Through its construction of the greenway, the Salisbury Parks and Recreation Department fulfills its mission to provide “quality leisure services through safe, attractively maintained parks and diversified programs that meet the current and future needs of the community."Salisbury Greenway Brochure

The Forest Hill Park, located along the greenway, is a "9.4-acre park that is conveniently located and provides a greenway connector between Memorial Park and Knox Middle and Overton Elementary schools. The connector features an attractive bridge with inviting walking and sitting areas." Salisbury Parks and Recreation Website. Kelsey Scott Park is an additional destination along the greenway. There is a railroad bridge that dates back to 1856, a softball field, two basketball courts, and a 9-hole disc golf course in the 21.7-acre park.

"Greenways like the one in Salisbury allow us to move in communities and provide for the more active and environmentally conscientious population that we see emerging."Center for the Environment Website  The City of Salisbury is well on its way to achieving this goal but still has a few sections that still need to be completed in order to finish the loop such as the connection between Prescott Drive and Grant's Creek section, which will also connect back to Kelsey Scott Park.
