How to Donate

The OSG committee operates on behalf of the City of Oneonta. While the city of Oneonta provides some support for mowing of the trails at Silas Lane, all other support comes from volunteers. We need your help to provide the funds for trail signs, benches, pavilion upkeep, and other trail amenities.

The OSG is affiliated with OCCA (Otsego County Conservation Association) in Cooperstown. OCCA has generously offered to hold donations to the Greenway in a special Greenway fund. Therefore, donations may be sent to:

The Greenway Fund
P.O. Box 931
Cooperstown, NY 13326

Checks should be made out to “OCCA.” Include on the memo line: “Greenway Fund.”


A special thanks goes to Directive Technology, who graciously hosts this website for us as a community service. For more information about this  Oneonta website server, visit their website at

Thanks also to Marjorie Rogers, who built the original website on which this one was based.

The trail will start at the fishing access east of Route 205 at Exit 13 and proceed eastward, following the Susquehanna River closely to Exit 14. The trail will be between I-88 and the river. At Exit 14 the trail will go under the Main Street bridge and join with the sidewalk. Future construction will join the current Greenway trail to the new section, making one continuous four mile trail.

The trail is now planned as a handicapped accessible, hard surfaced, multi-purposed path for runners, hikers, bikers, stroller and wheelchair users.

There is to be a fence between the trail and I-88.

Thanks for your support!
