Bill Klingner Trail Description

The vision for a trail along Cedar Creek was borne in the 1940s’, thanks to the man who would eventually lend his name to the project. Bill Klingner worked with the Quincy Park District and the foresight to bet on walking and biking at a time when cars were king. Today the greenway starts in Bob May’s Park and crosses back and forth over the Cedar Creek as it winds west towards N 18th Street. When completed, the trail will extend from Bonasinga Drive to N 36th. At present, planning is underway for the extension from 18th to 24th streets.



Parking and Trail Access

You can park at trailhead at Bob Mays Park located (2533 N 18th St.) The park features a shelter house, and restrooms, and 53 acres of restored prairie with interpretive signage.
