The Emerald Network is an initiative of LivableStreets, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) advocacy organization. LivableStreets is dedicated to improving our transportation systems and unlocking access and opportunity for those most in need. We recognize that transportation is linked to economic justice and public health, and work towards solutions that will make our communities more connected and livable for everyone.

One of the ways we are making this vision a reality is by connecting and completing the Emerald Network, a 200-mile, connected network of greenway paths across Metro Boston.The Emerald Network creates safe, non-motorized pathways that parallel routes that many people already travel for commutes, pleasure, and exercise. As the network opens connections to transit, jobs, and open space, it has the power to transform how we get around our city and the region.

The Emerald Network is a collaborative effort engaging multiple municipalities, public agencies, community members, and institutions. We welcome you to get involved!
