Second phase of Glade Creek Greenways now open

Roanoke County, Virginia – A new section of greenway opened in Vinton Tuesday morning.
Phase II of the Glade Creek Greenway was opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new trailhead near Gus Nicks Boulevard by Vinton and Roanoke County leaders.
This master plan will connect Vinton with the Roanoke River Greenway and also with the rest of the greenway system.
“When these pieces of Glade Creek are finished, then anyone living in Vinton will be able to hop on here and go all the way to Salem,” Greenway Coordinator Liz Belcher said.
“The greenways in the Roanoke Valley are much more than pathways. They’re about people and we’ve been very fortunate to have some really great people working on our greenways,” Vinton Mayor Brad Grose added.
