The scenic Springfield Greenway meanders along a lush tree-lined creek in northern Springfield, just a half hour north of Nashville. The pathway is paved, flat and smooth, making for easy walking or riding, and has only one street crossing.
Parks at either end (Garner Street Park on the west side and J. Travis Price Park on the east side) provide restrooms, picnic areas, playgrounds and athletic fields.
