On November 16, KC Parks and City officials joined with Briarcliff neighbors to officially open a new 1/2 mile segment of Briarcliff Greenway Trail. The new section incorporates boardwalks to preserve the natural habitat and beauty of the linear Northland park.
Briarcliff Greenway is a 41-acre Park, acquired in 1957, which extends between NW 36th St. and NW 41st Terrace. The first trail section in Briarcliff Greenway was completed in 2012 north of NW 40th St. Extensive community input was received for this new section of Briarcliff Greenway between NW 40th St. to NW 37th Street.
A design build approach was used to incorporate concerns of preserving the greenway, keeping construction cost low and increase delivery time on the project.
