Read Mountain Greenway

Read Mountain Greenway

Read Mountain Greenway is under development, to connect Mason Mill Park to the Roanoke Centre for Industry and Technology (RCIT). In 2020 the first 0.64-mile, paved section opened at the end of Blue Hills Drive. This offers employees in the business park additional options for walking, in conjunction with sidewalks in the complexes. The views of neighboring mountains are excellent. On-street parking is available on Blue Hills Drive. The next phase will go down the hill and connect to Mason Mill Park and Tinker Creek greenway.
