Historic Town Center

The Parkway

Hanford Project's Commercial Anchor

Drawing upon pre-war traditions of garden suburbs, Richland was organized into distinct but integrated residential and shopping districts. During the Manhattan Project, the center of the Greenway was one of the few green open spaces in Richland, hence the name, the Greenway. Now known as the Richland Parkway, the Greenway was Richland’s commercial anchor point, where secret city residents could shop, visit the library, or watch a movie all within walking distance from their homes.
