About the Spicket River Greenway

The 3.5-mile Spicket River Greenway runs along the Spicket River by Central Catholic High School and links a network of existing and new open spaces, parks, and neighborhoods along the river, including the William Kennedy Playstead adjacent to Central Catholic.

This project, completed in June 2015, was a collaboration of the City of Lawrence, Groundwork Lawrence, and numerous businesses and organizations, including Central Catholic.
