Metro Green

Kansas City, Missouri

For the better part of a decade, Vireo has provided planning and implementation leadership for the creation of one of the largest interconnected networks of open spaces, greenways and trails in the country. MetroGreen, a Mid-America Regional Council initiative, proposes more than 1000 miles of connected spaces covering 85 separate corridors and spanning seven counties across metro Kansas City. The initiative combines the preservation of some of the area's most valuable natural assets with an extensive network of trails for alternative transportation.
