Homewood Shades Creek Greenway Description

Homewood Shades Creek Greenway will one day stretch 6 miles through Homewood, a southern suburb of Birmingham. Currently, 2.6 miles are complete paralleling Lakeshore Drive and the wooded banks of Shades Creek. In the future, it will reach Jemison Park, a 54-acre natural oasis in the city. Along the way, the trail offers access to schools, shopping areas, neighborhoods, and workplaces.

Parking and Trail Access

Dedicated trail parking is available on the trail's western end at Columbiana Road.

Homewood Shades Creek Greenway Reviews

Shared asphalt greenway for bikers, walkers, runners. Follows a beautiful creek. Screened from road traffic but not remote. Used by All ages. Popular morning, day & early evening. Although shared, most bikers know to shout "on your right!" as they overtake walkers. Plenty of parking at east end of trail. Pro: Wide, Shaded, Mowed & caretaken, Easy. : No potties unless Homewood field potties are open, a few car breakins recently so stash your goodies well, dog walkers sometimes don't clean up w/doggie bags.
