CG Recognized by Chamber

Celebrating 25 Years!

We are proud to say Cardinal Greenway, Inc. was recently recognized by the Muncie-Delaware County Chamber of Commerce for 25 years of faithfully serving the community. CG CEO Angie Pool and CG Board Members proudly displayed the 25 Year certificate in front of our CG headquarters. We’re excited about our Silver Anniversary and thank everyone who made the trail a reality and have kept it going for 25 years.


CG Corporate Sponsors

Supporting the Trail

We wish to thank our Corporate Sponsors for supporting Cardinal Greenways during our 25th Anniversary year. Central Indiana Orthopedics has been a long-time sponsor for over 10 years. In addition, two local businesses, MutualBank and Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, are supporting CG on the corporate level. These companies enable us to keep our trail well-maintained, safe and beautiful. Because of their help, we continue to be one of the top-rated rail trails in the USA, and together we can be so for another 25 years!
