Exploring Nature’s Backyard:

Village Green Apartments and the Green Mill Run Greenway

By Stephanie Bland, Property Manager


Nestled in the heart of Greenville, North Carolina, Village Green Apartments offers its residents a unique blend of urban convenience and natural beauty. One of the most remarkable features of this community is its close proximity to the Green Mill Run Greenway, a scenic trail that weaves through the city, connecting key attractions and green spaces.

A Stone’s Throw Away from Tranquility

Imagine stepping out of your apartment and finding yourself just a stone’s throw away from the Green Mill Run Greenway. This is the daily reality for residents of Village Green Apartments, and it’s a privilege that adds an extra layer of charm to our community.

The Greenway spans across Greenville, seamlessly linking prominent city landmarks such as East Carolina University and Greensprings Park. This well-maintained trail provides not only a scenic escape but also a convenient pathway for those looking to explore the city on foot or by bike.

Midway Oasis: Elm Street Park

About midway along the Greenway, residents of Village Green Apartments will discover the delightful Elm Street Park. This park is a hub of recreational opportunities, offering a diverse range of activities for individuals and families alike.

Elm Street Park features athletic fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, and open spaces for lawn games. Whether you’re an avid sports enthusiast or someone looking for a relaxing afternoon picnic, Elm Street Park has something for everyone.

Eastern Connection: South Tar River Greenway

For those seeking a more extended adventure, the Greenway seamlessly connects to the South Tar River Greenway at its eastern end. This extension spans approximately 5 miles, leading residents through pleasantly wooded scenery. The lush greenery and tranquil surroundings make it a perfect escape for nature lovers.

A Growing Trail for a Growing Community

The Greenway is not stagnant; it’s a dynamic trail actively expanding to serve the needs of the growing community. In March 2017, the trail received an extension of just over a mile southwest to Arlington Boulevard and Evans Street. This expansion is a crucial link, connecting the trail to a bustling commercial area of the city.

Now, residents of Village Green Apartments have the convenience of accessing shops, restaurants, and the Blount Recreational Sports Complex via this extended route. It’s not just a pathway; it’s a connection to the vibrant life of the city.

Living at Village Green Apartments isn’t just about having a place to call home; it’s about embracing a lifestyle that seamlessly blends urban living with the tranquility of nature. The proximity to the Green Mill Run Greenway is not just a perk; it’s an invitation to explore, connect, and enjoy the beauty that Greenville has to offer.

As the Property Manager of Village Green Apartments, I take pride in providing residents with a living experience that goes beyond the confines of four walls. The Green Mill Run Greenway is not just a trail; it’s a pathway to a healthier, more vibrant, and connected community.
