The Woodland Way Corridor

The Woodland Way Corridor

 In 2015, FoRR adopted a 1-mile stretch of the Reedy River, calling it the Woodland Way Corridor. We envision the corridor becoming a key destination along the SRT that also serves as a city- and countywide model for river/water stewardship and sustainable watershed management practices. It will be a model for naturalized stream corridors within an urban setting.
