Glade Creek Greenway

Glade Creek Greenway

Glade Creek Greenway is currently a 0.6-mile paved path, parallel to Glade Creek in the Town of Vinton. The greenway links Tinker Creek Greenway at Virginia Avenue to bicycle and pedestrian facilities on Walnut Avenue and will soon reach to Gus Nicks Boulevard. The first phase of the greenway to Walnut opened in 2017 and the second phase to Gus Nicks is under construction in 2020. The greenway will provide a fitness facility for residents, a commuting connection to downtown Vinton, a park for neighbors, and a connection to the wider greenway network, via Tinker Creek and Roanoke River Greenways.

Ultimately, this greenway will connect to Gish Mill and to Vinyard Park in Roanoke County. Currently, parking is available at the Tinker Creek Greenway parking lot on Dale Avenue and on 5th Street.
