Welcome to the Friends of the Columbia Greenway Rail Trail Westfield, Massachusetts
We are proud of our efforts to blaze new trails and establish ourselves as a force for change, helping to transform Westfield into a bicycle and pedestrian friendly community
The Columbia Greenway is getting lots of use with the COVID-19 outbreak and better weather. Please respect everyone who is sharing the trail. All users should adhere to CDC social distancing guidelines. Bikers, announce when approaching walkers from behind. Walkers, give others space when passing and watch for faster bikes and runners. Dog walkers, pick up your dog’s waste. We are proud to have such a resource in our city - and we’re in this together to help keep everyone safe.
