Exploring Research Park’s new community path

Jun 6, 2023 | Uncategorized

University City has no shortage of stunning greenways for walking, running, cycling, and more. But did you know that on the northern edge of the University Research Park, there’s a shared pathway that’s great for pedestrians, vehicles, and cyclists, too?

The Research Park is made up of over a million square feet of office space within a third of a mile of the new path, plus more than 3,000 residences. The wide, single-lane roads, with relatively low traffic makes the Research Park ideal for cycling, and this recent addition creates a safe, seamless nearly 3-mile loop along Mallard Creek Church Road.
