Grand Canyon Greenway: From Vision to Reality

Virtual Training

Webinar Project Planning and Design

This webinar will feature three members of the original design team who will take attendees through the vision, design, and development process to develop the Grand Canyon Greenway.

Webinar Outline


In 1997, ten of the nation's leaders in greenway development were invited to work with the National Park Service and the Grand Canyon National Park Foundation to develop a plan of action for implementing a greenway master plan for Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona. This webinar will feature three members of the original design team who will take attendees through the vision, design, and development process. The Greenway identified in the officially adopted General Management Plan (GMP) for Grand Canyon National Park.


This project is part of an overall strategy to reduce automobile congestion within the national park and offer visitors a choice in how they visit and view this World Heritage Site. The now completed greenway links the Park's hubs at Grand Canyon Village and Grand Canyon Lodge, with points of interest along the North and South rims. Nonmotorized connections address unique challenges of access and use, and deployed state of the art accessibility strategies. The project was dedicated in an April 1999 ceremony lead by First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. The project received a 2001 American Society of Landscape Architects Merit Award, Planning, and Analysis and is a model for other national parks to emulate.



Learning Objectives:


  • Attendees will learn how to address and resolve Universal Design and accessibility solutions within challenging landscapes.
  • Attendees will better understand how to design and build sustainable trails in challenging landscapes.
