The Jack Harrington White Plains Greenway was recently renamed to honor a long-time member of the city's conservation board. The trail's corridor follows the former New York, Westchester & Boston Railway right-of-way, extending from a City parking lot at Mamaroneck Avenue opposite Bloomingdale Road to the Scarsdale border.
Part of the corridor, the section between the parking lot at Mamaroneck Avenue and Gedney Way, is unimproved and currently inaccessible. This section is 0.4 miles long.
The part of the corridor that offers a useable, improved trail begins at the intersection of Gedney Way and Pleasant Avenue, where you will find a large brown sign with yellow lettering. From Gedney Way, the usable trail heads south, adjacent to the DPW facility and residential neighborhoods. The trail is 0.8 miles long between Gedney Way and Ridgeway. From Ridgeway to the Scarsdale border, the trail is 0.5 miles long, ending at a small swamp.
Use of the entire Greenway is restricted to pedestrian traffic. Note that several major streets intersect the Greenway, including Bryant Avenue, Gedney Way, and Ridgeway. The surface is very well maintained with wood chips and has been cleared of nearly all trees since Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
Parking and Trail Access
Parking near the trail can be found in Gillie Park at the corner of Mamaroneck Avenue and Gedney Way in White Plains.
