greenway week celebration 10 year anniversary photoCelebrate 10 years of the Greenway with a week of highlighted events and activities, will take place from Friday, October 4 to Thursday, October 17 on The Greenway! (*10/10 activities have ben rescheduled to 10/17 due to weather).

After 10 years of care and management, the Conservancy has transformed The Greenway into a neighborhood amenity, an economic driver for the city and state, and a world-class destination.

During Greenway Week, the Conservancy will highlight the incredible partners and supporters, the many volunteers, and the extensive programming and public art of The Greenway.

Throughout the week, the Conservancy will reflect on innovations in public art, contemporary and accessible programming, local food and drink, and the commitment to being a dynamic public space, free and open to all.

A centerpiece of the week will be three free dance performances at the Rings Fountain. The Conservancy has commissioned celebrated choreographer Peter DiMuro and his company Public Displays of Motion to create a site-specific dance work, free and open to the public.

Waterway/Lightway/Greenway will be performed by DiMuro's ensemble with additional guest community dancers in and around the Rings Fountain on Saturday, October 5 at 1:00pm and 3:00pm and Thursday, October 17 at 6:15pm. (rescheduled from 10/10 due to weather)

The piece is inspired by the history of The Greenway and will include a procession through the green space and dance in and around the Rings Fountain.

Additional highlights of Greenway Week include the lighting of neighboring buildings green, the Conservancy’s largest hosted food truck festival on Saturday, October 5, and a day of free rides at the Greenway Carousel at The Tiffany & Co. Foundation Grove on Thursday, October 10!

This spring, visitors could unwind among 10,000 new bulbs blooming in the Carolyn Lynch Garden, and to explore the park’s new beehives and wildflower meadow. The summer kicked off with the signature Rings Fountain receiving an incredible upgrade with the addition of colored lights, synchronized to the fountain water shows.

The 2019 Public Art exhibit, The Auto Show (including The Greenway’s first augmented reality installation), pinstriping demo, and car themed summer film series carried the transportation theme throughout the season.

Along with these exciting additions to The Greenway, the Conservancy was thrilled this season to bring back a full and fun events calendar including fitness classes, major festivals, family play, live music, movies, markets, and more. Park Rangers, volunteers, and new branding welcomed visitors to The Greenway as a place to gather, unwind, play, and explore.
