White House Greenway
Divided into four phases for development purposes, the White House Greenway encompasses several different land uses. Along the different phases are developed properties consisting of retail businesses, residences, and agricultural uses, as well as undeveloped areas that are heavily wooded.
Phase I of the Greenway begins at the Andrew Jackson Trailhead located adjacent to the White House Municipal Park on Highway 76. From this point, the greenway heads south, passing Heritage High School, towards the James K. Polk Trailhead located on Highway 31W. The Greenway then crosses Tyree Springs Road to the Tyree Springs Trailhead located adjacent to White House High School.
Phase II – IV
Phase II – IV of the Greenway begins at the Tyree Springs Trailhead and continues to pass beneath North Palmers Chapel Road and Highway 76/Portland Road. From Highway 76/Portland Road, the Greenway runs along Honey Run Creek in a heavily wooded area. This portion of the Greenway is very scenic. Phase IV of the Greenway finishes at the Honey Run Creek Trailhead located on Highway 31W approximately 1.5 miles north of the Highway 31 and Highway 76 intersection.
Much of the greenway passes through wooded flood plains following Honey Run Creek and it’s various branches. People can enjoy the trail by walking, jogging, running, biking, or roller-blading.
The greenway covers exactly 3.5 miles. Federal grants will cover most of the cost, which is expected to exceed $4 million. The addition will give residents and visitors alike a chance to enjoy the beauty of White House.
