The New England wide vision plan for a network of greenways and green spaces is built on the continuation of a great tradition of planning in New England.
In the tradition of landscape architecture, the members of the New England Greenway Vision Plan and the American Society of Landscape Architects believe that the time has arrrived to "make the connections" among the thousands of parks and open spaces in New England. We can build on our amazing parks and open spaces to create the first multi-state, regional greenway network to serve as a model for America and the globe. We are poised to create a cohesive network for the 43 million acres of New England - making greenways as accessible to everyone as our roads are today.
The plan builds upon existing and proposed greenways in all six states and identifies the critical linkages that will make a New England system.

Additional work will need to be done in the field to finalize the designs of reroutes and proposed trails described in this report.
