Tiftarea Greenways Association fosters a healthy Tift Area through the creation and safe use of quality bicycle and pedestrian networks and greenways.
We hope that through this website we can inform you of our attempts to increase accessibility to and availability safe and healthy, outdoor activities, alternate means of transportation, and environmental preservation in the Tifton area.
We work together to make our cause known, to the public and local government. We partner with other local groups who seek environmental preservation, outdoor recreation, and the overall improvement of local living conditions.
