James River Greenway Description

The James River Greenway offers a pleasant route along tree-lined Lake Springfield on the south end of Springfield. The paved pathway offers scenic views of the lake, bluffs, and prairies, as well as access to the river for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking.

Nearby, you can extend your trip on the Galloway Creek Greenway. Both are part of efforts by Ozark Greenways, a nonprofit group in Springfield working to expand the local trail network.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available within Lake Springfield Park (5324 S. Kissick Avenue).
