Coventry Greenway and Trestle Trail

Coventry, Rhode island

Coventry Greenway and Trestle Trail make up a 15 mile rural and urban experience extending from the Connecticut state line, through Coventry to the West Greenwich town line.  The multi-use trails run along an abandoned rail corridor and offer exceptional views to rivers, ponds, woodlands and mill villages. The project is a good example of state and town efforts to develop a transportation and recreation facility that is sensitive to the natural environment and responsive to community concerns and needs.

Bradford Associates’ work included, visual analysis and interpretation, landscape design and construction drawings for parking areas ,special viewing locations and site furnishings, planting for steep slopes, disturbed areas, screening, wetland edges as well as presentation graphics, interpretive signage and participation in public workshops. Our park and greenway experience and understanding of native plant communities, were a particularly valuable resources for these trail projects.
