Midtown Greenway Coalition

A nonprofit organization

701 Donors

As the nonprofit that worked to get the Greenway built, we're proud it has become an essential transit corridor for so many people. We're working hard to keep it safe, clean, green, and open for everyone.   And we're working to extend it over the river and through Saint Paul.

We're a 501c3 nonprofit organization that relies on donations to fund our work for the Greenway.  We hope you will consider making a donation and becoming a member.  All donations of $100 or more, or sustaining monthly donations of $10 or more, will make you an official FRIEND OF THE GREENWAY!

Your support will help us:

  • Work to Extend the Greenway over the River and through Saint Paul
  • Convince Minneapolis Public Works to re-do the poor repaving job they recently did on the trail.
  • Coordinate our Midtown Bike + Walk Ambassadors who bike and walk in the Lake Street-Greenway corridor to welcome visitors.
  • Create safer street crossings and better wayfinding signs
  • Lead legal battles to protect the Greenway.   A few years ago we won the battle to keep high voltage power lines out of the Greenway!
  • Install trees, native plants, and gardens to help fight climate change and beautify the Greenway
  • Sweep glass and clean up trash from the Greenway
  • Guide development along the corridor
  • Install murals and public art and organize the Greenway Glow Arts Festival

We're powered by donations and receive no operational funding from the government.   Donations are tax-deductible.

"We can trace much of the city's bike renaissance to the Midtown Greenway, a 5.5-mile former railroad opened in 2000 that has since has become a non-automotive superhighway. Cyclists and pedestrians can hop on and off at various points with ease, and the striking Martin Olav Sabo Bridge sends cyclists over busy Hiawatha Avenue. The path even has its own dedicated bike shop complete with bike parking, water, bathrooms, and showers for commuters. Basically, it's a cyclist's dream."
