Green Hope GreenwayFrom Green Hope School Road, this greenway, named after a historic school from this local area, heads both north and south on a mixture of street-side trails and greenways. It goes north 0.4 miles along the edge of The Oaks at Highcroft subdivision where it currently dead ends. The southern section connects to Highcroft Elementary School and passes through Sears Farm Neighborhood Park, which is the site of a kinetic community art installation, entitled Curvaceous Kiss, that kids can play on.  From there the southern section continues on until it joins Batchelor Branch Greenway. Future plans have this greenway going north from its current stopping point to meet up with other trails.
