Help us celebrate the connection of the Ohio River Greenway with a family-friendly biking event along the Ohio River.  The Ohio River Greenway is a 7.5 mile multi-use path stretching from Jeffersonville to New Albany.  We will be holding a week-long virtual event this year due to the COVID-19 virus.  Families are encouraged to walk, run, or ride the entire Ohio River Greenway sometime between May 15th-May 22nd.  If you take a picture of yourself on the Greenway in each community (Jeff, Clarksville, New Albany), and send it in, you will receive a free t-shirt and be entered to win 4 season passes to the aquatic center of your choice.  The available options are Clarksville Cove Family Aquatic Center, River Run in New Albany, or the Jeffersonville Aquatic Center. This event is open to all ages.  Learn more at
