Latvian Greenways Association is a non-profit foundation with the main aim to develop the former railway lines and adopt them for the use of non-motorized transport – cyclists, hikers, horse riding, skiing as well as people with special needs.
The Association has been established in 2015, following similar initiatives in many Western European countries, where thousands of kilometers of Greenways have been developed.
At the moment the Association has 12 members – Municipalities that have former railway lines and canal dams and former railway infrastructure on their territories:
Aloja, Amata, Carnikava, Ērgli, Gulbene, Limbazi, Ogre, Ropazi, Rujiena, Jaunpiebalga, Vecpiebalga and Strenci municipalities
The yearly membership fee is a fixed amount of 250 EUR, + 1 EUR for each Greenways KM in the municipality.
The President of Latvian Greenways Association is Mr. Jānis Bordāns
You are welcome to join us and continue to develop Greenways in Latvia!
