The Metacomet Greenway is a project looking to utilize the abandoned  Old Colony Railroad corridor in Walpole, Norfolk, Wrentham, Plainville and North Attleboro as recreation and open space.
This 17 mile way offers the potential for a diverse range of recreational trail uses. Across America, communities have developed rail trails to promote: safe, alternative transportation; recreation activities; energy conservation; clean air; enhance a community's quality-of-life, residents’ health and so much more.
