Directions: I-75 North to Merchant Road Exit. Left off exit, approximately two miles to intersection of Merchant Road and Pleasant Ridge Road. Park is on the south side of this intersection.

Pleasant Ridge Greenway was built by TDOT as part of the Pleasant Ridge Road Improvement Project.

On the west side of Pleasant Ridge Road, Pleasant Ridge Greenway begins just north of the Pleasant Ridge Road/Merchant Dr. intersection light and heads south on Pleasant Ridge Road until stopping at the bridge that crosses I-640.

The Pleasant Ridge Greenway connects to Northwest Greenway in Northwest Middle School, heading south to connect to Victor Ashe Greenway at Victor Ashe Park.

Pleasant Ridge Greenway is a prime example of how a greenway, through a mere 1.7-mile road improvement project, can connect thousands of people living in hundreds of homes and several large apartment/condominium complexes to two school zones, two major parks, several churches, and many businesses including several grocery providers.
