Yazoo River Trail & Arboretum

Yazoo River Trail

The Yazoo River Trail provides access to walking and hiking on 45 acres of pristine batture forest habitat. Location in the Greenwood-Yazoo River Natural Area, the meadow trail meanders through a small grove of trees and the forest trail winds along the Yazoo River through a beautiful bottomland hardwood forest. In 2018, a bridge and boardwalk, designed and built by Delta Design Build Workshop, were added to the Trail to improve accessibility. Site amenities including picnic tables, benches, trash receptacles, and a bike rack are available on site.

Yazoo River Arboretum

The Yazoo River Arboretum is a great place for passive recreation between Keesler Bridge and Veterans Bridge in the center of Greenwood. The area is home to a wide variety of native and trees and is adjacent to the Greenwood municipal boat landing. Several community events, including Stars & Stripes and the city's Employee Appreciation Day are held here each year. The Arboretum is also a great place to view the fireworks display that follows the Roy Martin Delta Band Festival.
