The purpose of the Portneuf Greenway Foundation is to help establish and improve the Portneuf Greenway as a community resource and to encourage
restoration of natural areas along the Portneuf River to enhance the quality
of life for residents of Pocatello and Bannock County.
Greenways . . .
- Provide people with access to outdoor recreation and enjoyment close to home.
- Promote public health and safety by encouraging physical fitness.
- Serve as sites for passive pursuits, such as picnicking, camping, and wildlife observation.
- Provide opportunities for outdoor classroom experiences in close proximity to schools.
- Help maintain strong public support for community conservation efforts because people can enjoy and appreciate what is being conserved.
Our Greenway provides a place for visitors and resident bicyclists, hikers, walkers, joggers, rollerbladers, and physically challenged people to exercise and experience the natural beauty of our community.
Further it provides residents of the local residential community to enjoy a better lifestyle. We are community funded and publicly funded.
Our Greenway also serves as an alternative non-motorized transportation route for commutes to work, school, parks, and recreation sites. This alternative form of transportation can help reduce air pollution, road congestion, energy consumption, and are economical and healthy for the user and the community.
Our Greenway serves as a venue for public access to adjacent public lands.
