There is some terrific neighborhood running right near downtown Green Bay. We recommend creating your own run in the Astor Park and Allouez neighborhoods. Astor Park is a designated historic district and features lovely, tree-shaded streets, sidewalks, and older homes, including many restored Victorians! This is also a good option in winter, when some of Green Bay’s paths aren’t as runnable.
From downtown, head south of E Walnut St. The Astor Park neighborhood is east of Highway 57. Enjoy running on these streets in the area between the Fox and East rivers. Astor Park off Porlier St. is the anchor of the area, and Webster Ave. is the main connector. The east-west streets around there — Porlier, Eliza, Grignon, etc. are especially nice. S Clay is one of the nicer, longer north-south streets. It’s about 1.5 miles between E Walnut and the train tracks. and 1 mile between the two rivers. You can continue into the Allouez neighborhood (use Webster Ave. or Libal St.) as far as Highway 172. E Mission and Greene Ave. are nice for running. Be sure to check out Heritage Hill Historic Park at the west end of Greene for some green and a hill!
Add-Ons: River paths. We especially like the 2 mile stretch along the west bank of the East River through the three parks. Use Stuart St., and run south through Joannes Park, Meyer Park, and East River Park. There’s a running track at City Stadium.
