The Stroud Greenway
( Map ) Constructed in the aftermath of the floods in the 1950s, the levee separates the residents of Stroudsburg and East Stroudsburg from the torrential tendencies of the Brodhead Creek.
From the Levee, picturesque views of the Brodhead Creek, wildlife, and community landscapes can be observed. This section of the Brodhead Creek Watershed includes public parks, playgrounds, skate parks, several ball fields, two municipal swimming pools, natural ponds, a disc golf course, a public golf course, schools, East Stroudsburg University (ESU), Day Street Community Center, and the historic downtown districts of Stroudsburg and East Stroudsburg.

The SROSRC has developed several feasability studies that look into future trail connections. Visit StroudGreenway.org to view these studies.
Contribute to a distinctive community!
Recreational trails provide unique exercise opportunities and transportation routes, preserve critical open space, create natural corridors for wildlife, and enhance the communities through which they pass. As highly desirable destinations for an increasing number of residents and tourists, regional trails also contribute to the local economy. Trail users need food, lodging, shoes, special clothes, and gear for running, hiking, biking, skating, or skiing. Many even buy souvenirs and other items during their trip.
