Take the murals route!
Have you visited our greenway murals yet?
There are five altogether, on the best green routes heading out of the city – at Naburn Bridge on the Solar System Greenway to the south, under Tang Hall Lane and Melrosegate on Foss Islands Path to the east, and just before Skelton on the Way of the Roses Route (NCN 65) to the north.
Designed by Liz Collier Art, we’ve been painting (and repainting) them with you since 2015, and some remain in excellent condition. Liz’s artwork, and your handiwork, has transformed these greenway walls, tunnels and bench spaces.
Why not take a short walk or ride out to each, or a longer day trip and visit them all! You can use the York Cycle Map, or one of the Slow Tour Maps below to plan your trip:
