The V&E Greenline is a natural, green space located in Memphis, TN. The trail has a running length of 1.7 miles, stretches between Springdale and Watkins, and has intersections at Stonewall, Evergreen, McLean, and Jackson.
The Greenline provides a natural, serene space for members of the community and beyond to exercise, walk their dogs, observe wildlife, or even visit with fellow users of the Greenline. From the tree canopy to the creek, nature abounds along the trail.The canopy overhead protects users from the sun's heat, making it comfortable for community members to meet, as well as giving the trail an iconic view.
Students of Rhodes college designed and created statues to occupy space at the west end of the trail. The statues provide a family friendly element to the trail, and people of all ages can come and enjoy the statues, as well as the old Sears Distribution Center (now Crosstown Concourse) which is located at that end of the trail. The old Sears building is a lovely piece of architecture which accentuates the movement from natural trail to the industrial.
