Greenbelt Walkway


Keystone Trail for Residents and Visitors Alike

The Greenbelt Walkway was built in phases beginning in the 1970s and is enjoyed by thousands of residents as well as the many visitors to Greater Portland each year. The trail extends nearly 6 miles from  historic Bug Light Park (where Liberty Ships were built during WWII) to the Wainwright Recreation Complex toward the west end of the city.

The trail treats walkers, runners and cyclists to three notable waterfront vistas as it winds through the neighborhoods of Ferry Village, Knightville, Pleasantdale and Broadview Park. The Greenbelt Walkway is part of the East Coast Greenway, a trail that will someday span over 3,000 miles from Calais, Maine to Key West Florida. It is also the northernmost portion of the Eastern Trail, a walking and cycling trail that will lead from South Portland to Kittery, Maine.
