The Downriver Linked Greenways Initiative is a regional non-motorized pathway vision for the Downriver region. It is envisioned that this regional pathway system will connect the 17 Downriver communities and Wayne County through a network of trails and greenways, and will feed and link into a rapidly forming regional and statewide system of greenways. The effort to produce a coordinated, functioning, non-motorized system is an essential factor in the quality of life for the Downriver communities.

The very nature of the regional system in terms of environment and limited interaction with vehicles provides a network that can service a wide variety of user types and abilities. The Downriver Linked Greenways system consists of four primary segments: Hines Drive/Rouge Gateway, I-275 corridor, Metroparks/Flat Rock/Brownstown, and I-75/Detroit River. In addition to these four primary segments, the Downriver Linked Greenways will continue north through the city of Detroit along the Detroit River, south to Monroe and Toledo, and west leading to Ann Arbor, thereby connecting the local parks to the emerging regional and statewide network.

The communities that participate in the Downriver Linked Greenways Initiative are: city of Allen Park, Brownstown Township, city of Flat Rock, city of Gibraltar, Grosse Ile Township, Huron Township, city of Lincoln Park, city of Melvindale, city of Monroe, city of Riverview, city of Rockwood, city of Romulus, city of Southgate, city of Taylor, city of Trenton, city of Woodhaven, city of Wyandotte and Wayne County. Other participants include the Detroit River American Heritage River Initiative, SBC Ameritech, the office of Congressman John Dingell, DTE Energy, the Downriver Community Conference, the Huron-Clinton Metropolitan Authority, the office of Representative George Mans, and the Southern Wayne County Chamber of Commerce.
