The New Albany, Clarksville, and Jeffersonville Parks Departments invite the public to Le Tour de Greenway, a family-friendly fun event where you can walk, run, ride or just enjoy the activities on the Ohio River Greenway. Set for Saturday, May 9, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, this event is meant to celebrate the full connection of the Greenway, a 7.5-mile multi-use path through the three communities. With the opening of a walking bridge across Silver Creek, recreational users can now ride the Greenway from end to end. (If needed, a rain date has been scheduled for Saturday, May 16, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm).
Le Tour de Greenway is a joint partnership between the three parks departments, with support from Falls of the Ohio State Park, Ohio River Greenway Commission, and the Clark-Floyd Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Le Tour de Greenway is free and open to all ages. Families and individuals are invited to register online or on the morning of the event. Participants will receive a “passport” with information about the Greenway and locations of fun stops along the way. Each community will have three to four stops with fun family activities such as inflatables, music, food, games, and more!
There are 2 Starting Points to Choose From:
a. New Albany: Riverfront Amphitheater - 201 East Water Street
b. Jeffersonville: Overlook - 101 West Riverside Drive
With fun to be had at c. Clarksville: Ashland Park – 430 East Riverside Drive
Participants may have their passport stamped at each stop, and those who collect at least one stamp per community will receive a free Le Tour de Greenway T-shirt (while supplies last). Those who get a stamp at every stop will be entered into a drawing for a family season pass to their local parks department aquatic center (Jeffersonville Aquatic Center, Clarksville Cove Family Aquatic Center, or New Albany’s River Run Waterpark).
