Mission Statement
The Friends of the Needham Rail Trail Greenway is a group of interested citizens with broad representation from the community working in partnership with residents, neighborhood associations, town and state government to support the financing, planning, design, construction and maintenance needs of the Greenway.

The Friends group will work to resolve engineering, environmental and safety concerns, including street crossings and bridges, parking and other amenities, dimensions and materials used to construct the path. 

The Friends group will work to reduce the impact on and alleviate the concerns of abutters to the path; establish trail clearing and maintenance projects, develop financial resources to design and construct the path, and sponsor fund raising campaigns and grant applications with the goal of minimizing any expense to the town, and to provide a safe, healty recreation and transportation option for the entire community.
