Organization: Five Mile Creek Greenway Partnership
Status: Project complete

Address: Tarrant, Birmingham, AL
The Five Mile Creek Greenway Partnership, a division of Birmingham’s Cawaco Resource Conservation & Development Council, will receive $5,000 to help construct the first stretch of the Tarrant Aqueduct Trail. This multi-use path, in Birmingham’s historic Tarrant neighborhood, will connect two schools and link to 16.5 miles of existing rail trail as well as parks, green spaces, and residential areas.
Our funding will leverage two Transportation, Community, and System Preservation Program grants, as well as two grants from the City of Birmingham. This is our first grant to the state of Alabama.
