The Jack Harrington Greenway, a 19-acre linear park, is located at Gedney Way, White Plains, NY 10601. The greenway offers residents the opportunity to stroll the center of White Plains south side through a wooded environment.

Enter this former Rail-Trail on Gedney Way and continue south of Ridgeway until you reach the Scarsdale boarder. Enjoy the fall foliage with a hike on the The Greenway in White Plains, NY. The City of White Plains offers two unique trails that follow the former right of way of the New York, Westchester and Boston Railway. The terrain of the two trails are flat and linear and are excellent for both the first time and experienced hiker.

"The White Plains Greenway goes from the Scarsdale border to Bryant Avenue in White Plains, and travels along the New York Westchester & Boston right of way. The White Plains Greenway was born in 1939 when a major railroad line that ran directly through the southern portion of the city had to be dismantled for the war effort. Jack Harrington, active in the preservation of both TPL-protected properties, was a member of the community group that drove the city to transform the old railway into a nature trail and public recreation area. He and his neighbors seem to prize most the accessibility of the greenway. 'It's great to be able to take a long walk in the woods and end up at your back door.' The trail is 0.8 miles long between Gedney Way and Ridgeway. From Ridgeway to the Scarsdale border, the trail is 0.5 miles long. The Greenway is currently accessible only from Gedney Way and Ridgeway. Use of the entire Greenway is restricted to pedestrian traffic."
