First Creek Greenway is located between Glenwood Avenue and Broadway. The greenway is located parallel to First Creek in the 20-acre First Creek Park. The greenway has a small loop trail in the bend of the creek located in the middle of the park. There is a passive green space in the interior of the loop.
