The Carrollton GreenBelt
The Carrollton GreenBelt is a planned 16-mile hard surface trail system designed for pedestrians and non-motorized uses. Once it is complete, the trail will connect existing neighborhoods with the city school campus, the University of West Georgia, the city parks, and several commercial shopping areas.
The Carrollton GreenBelt is the largest greenspace and greenway conservation project that the City of Carrollton has undertaken. Once complete, it will also be the largest paved loop trail system in the state of Georgia.
The Carrollton GreenBelt serves the community in several capacities. Primarily, it serves as a recreational opportunity. Given the planned, strategic location of the trail, the community can also utilize the trail as an alternative to vehicular travel. With an increase in population and sedentary lifestyles, the GreenBelt provides an opportunity to integrate recreation with transportation, combatting several of the negative health trends impacting Carrollton.
