The City of Fayetteville has a unique trails construction program geared to design and construct trails as cost efficiently and quickly as possible by performing design, property acquisition and construction in-house utilizing primarily city staff. The city trails coordinator oversees the trails construction program through the Engineering Division with support from the city surveyors, land agents and engineers. When the trail is designed and the necessary property is acquired, the 9-member city trails construction crew builds the trail as part of the Transportation Division. Once the trail is complete, the Parks and Recreation Department oversees the maintenance and event programming of completed trails. For information and maps of existing trails please visit Trails and Greenways.

Frisco Trail Extension to Town Branch Trail - Complete!
The 0.8 mile extension of the Frisco Trail (Razorback Greenway) is complete. This trail segment is located along the west side of Walker Park to 15th Street. At 15th Street, a new pedestrian signal and crosswalk has be installed to provide a safe crossing as the trail continues south to Town Branch Creek where an 88 foot bridge spans the Creek. On the south side of Town Branch Creek the trail turns west and extends to Greathouse Springs Park.
The Town Branch and Cato Springs Trails will provide connectivity from the Razorback Greenway to the new Regional Park in southwest Fayetteville. Portions of the Town Branch Trail are complete, with the remaining sections west of Greathouse Park under construction in 2015 into early 2016. Design is being finalized on The Cato Springs Trail with construction planned for late spring of 2016.
