Bulloch Greenways Partnership

The Bulloch Greenways Partnership is comprised of the Statesboro-Bulloch County Parks and Recreation Department (SBCPRD), the Bulloch Greenways Steering Committee, Georgia Southern University (GSU), and area government agencies and businesses.

Founded in 2002, the Partnership is dedicated to planning and developing a network of greenways and trails that provides non-motorized recreation opportunities such as walking, biking, and jogging convenient to all residents of Bulloch County. We are encouraged by a 2002 poll of Bulloch County residents who overwhelmingly (85%) expressed a desire for a network of greenways and trails in their community.

The 2000 SBCPRD Master Plan listed the development of a greenway network a top priority in the next 10 years. Greenways are presently planned for downtown Statesboro and the GSU campus. A 1.25 mile walking path currently loops around Mill Creek Regional Park.So much work needs to be done! A community our size with a large university campus should have a much bigger network of greenways and trails.

That is where the Bulloch County Greenways Partnership comes into play. We are determined to work together to plan and develop a greenways network accessible to all of the residents of the County by the year 2015.

Update as of 6/23/2011:

Phase 1 of the S & S Greenway is nearing completion! The trail at Gentilly Road to Cawana Road is approximately 1 mile long and will be completed in July 2011. We will continue the trail from Cawana Road to Pretoria Rushing Road and this will be complete in August 2011. Phase 1 of this Greenway is funded by a Transportation Enhancement Grant.

The Master Plan for this Greenway shows it will be 8 miles in length.

Total plan for this Greenway includes: Phase 1 (above), Then Phase 2 would be Pretoria Rushing Road, runs along Josh Hagin Road, then to Grimshaw Road. Subsequent phases will then include the following path: Greenway will cross Grimshaw Road to Lane Avenue in Brooklet. It will run parallel to Lane Avenue, then turn before the Old First Baptist Church then stops in front of Denmark Furniture. More than likely, there will be a trailhead at this location as well as at Grimshaw Road.
