The idea for the Mascoma River Greenway emerged during a community trails forum co-hosted by the Lebanon Recreation & Parks Department and the Upper Valley Trails Alliance.
A team of consultants, ORW from White River Junction, ALTA Planning & Design from Boston, and Vanasse, Hagen, Brusslin of Bedford, NH reviewed the Greenway corridor, analyzed cost estimates, and developed a long range plan for the MRG.

Funding for improvements to the MRG corridor are included in the City of Lebanon Capital Improvement Program to some degree, but we need to actively raise funds for the project as well. Please consider making a contribution to the Greenway effort, or give us a hand at writing grant and foundation proposals!

I just found out about this! I’m a Lebanon resident and think this is a fantastic idea. While this is a nice area, more safe walking trails that are also near businesses and recreational areas will make it even better!
