White House Greenway (Map)

Contact Information


   Divided into four phases for development purposes, the White House Greenway encompasses several different land uses.  Along the different phases are developed properties consisting of retail businesses, residences, and agricultural uses, as well as undeveloped areas that are heavily wooded.  Much of the greenway passes through wooded flood plains following Honey Run Creek and its various branches.  People can enjoy the trail by walking, jogging, running, biking, or roller-blading.  The greenway currently covers exactly 3.5 miles.  Federal grants covered most of the cost, which is expected to exceed $4 million.  This addition gives residents and visitors alike a chance to enjoy the beauty of White House.

Trailheads and Location

There are four total trailheads for the existing portion of the Greenway.  These trailheads provide parking areas and entryways onto the greenway.  Two trailheads are located on US Highway 31W, while one is at the Municipal Park and the fourth is at White House High School at Meadows Road/Tyree Springs Road.  Currently 3.5 miles are completed and are the eastern half of the loop from the Municipal Park to US Highway 31W south of the city to US Highway 31W on the north side.  Map

Adopt-a-Trail

This program gives citizens and organizations an opportunity to volunteer their time by providing litter control along portions of the Greenway.  Contact the Parks and Recreation Department regarding the Adopt-a-Trail Program and to receive an application and safety guide.

 

Arboretum

Thank you to Mr. Randy Allen for achievement of a Level Two Tennessee Certified Arboretum for the White House Greenway. Mr. Allen realized it would benefit the City of White House to have an arboretum for the community to appreciate. He was the driving force behind our White House Greenway being able to obtain arboretum status. Mr. Allen worked countless hours identifying trees, making bronze labels, trimming, painting labels on the edge of pavement, and cutting down dead trees. In addition to all of that, Mr. Allen found and labeled more than 60 trees that run parallel to Honey Run Creek on the Greenway. Mr. Allen was recognized by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen by receiving a proclamation for all his hard work and effort in obtaining the Level Two Certified Arboreta status. 

You can click on the link to the Tennessee Urban Forestry Council and find the White House Greenway (any many others) listed as certified arboreta. 

Randy is a certified arborist and has obtained a Level Four Arboretum at his home. You can find more information about him here.
