Are you ready for a day of bike riding? Would
you enjoy a nice walk alongside a gurgling
stream? If so, the Galloway Creek Greenway is
the place for you. This 6 mile long linear park
connects Pershing Middle School, Sequiota
Park, the Springfield Conservation Nature Cen-
ter, and Lake Springfield. The trail passes
through neighborhoods, shopping areas, and the
quaint Galloway Village. Galloway Creek is
often visible from the trail and provides oppor-
tunities to observe wildlife and enjoy the sounds
of nature. Birds and animals might also be spot-
ted in Lone Pine Park. Pack a lunch and relax at
the beautiful Sequiota Park or at Lake Spring-
field. Whether you come for an entire day or just
an hour, you are sure to return.
