KZF Design has been working with Great Parks of Hamilton County for more than a year to plan and design the Glenwood Gardens to Winton Woods (GG2WW) Shared-use Trail. Most recently, we helped the organization secure a $6.3 million Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) federal grant to construct the trail.

Great Parks will build bike trail connecting four suburban communities

Great Parks of Hamilton County has secured a $6.3 million federal grant to connect four suburban communities and two of the system’s parks together.

Great Parks will extend the West Fork Mill Creek Greenway Trail from Glenwood Gardens to Winton Woods. The trail will connect Wyoming and Woodlawn to Springfield Township and Greenhills, including shopping, schools and community resources.

Once complete, the trail network will offer 9 miles of continuous shared-use paths that people can use to walk, run or bike for recreation or transportation.

The 3.6-mile path will be 12 feet wide and accessible to those with disabilities. It will include installing a new sidewalk between the shared main entrance of Glenwood Gardens and the Glenwood Crossing Shopping Center to the Metro bus stop, which is about 300 feet south on Springfield Pike.

The project also includes a signalized crosswalk to make pedestrian and bicycle access from busy Glendale-Milford Road more safe.
